National Kids Cancer Ride

NCKR Day 3 – Lake Louise to Calgary

  1. Dedication….

Today’s dedication was for Briony. It is the 10th anniversary year of Briony’s passing. Her Mom Lynn read the dedication. This is Lynn’s 3rd National Ride in honor of her daughter. Lynn also read us a letter that Briony wrote that she found after her passing. There were no dry eyes in the dedication circle.

We also met two cancer survivors today and their Moms.  The boys were both an incredible inspiration. This is why we ride – To make a difference in the lives of these kids and their families.

Our fantastic lunch was provided by previous NKCR National rider Laura. She lost her daughter Tristan this past January.  She also presented the group with a card and a heartwarming thank you note.

The Ride….

Our ride started in spectacular Lake Louise. 

The most scenic ride I’ve ever been on.

Lake Louise to Banff to Canmore to Seebe shuttle to Cochrane and last leg to Calgary. Another perfect weather day. Fast descent out of Lake Louise. Gorgeous mountains. Some super fast flatter sections into Canmore. Awesome 2.8 kilometer climb in Calgary. Our team is working really well together and we are making good  time so far.

Hoping for more of this great weather
