National Kids Cancer Ride

NKCR Day 4 – Lethbridge to Medicine Hat

Our day started with a dedication by  Omar for his daugher Jocelyn. Omar is one of our national riders and Jocelyn is a cancer survivor. Omar talked about the many challanges his daughter has endured along the way. It was great to meet Jocelyn and her Mom in Calgary on day 3.

Our journey has taken us out of the Rockies and into flatter areas.  Welcome to the prairie hills- also known as WIND.  For the morning ride the wind was mainly a crosswind from behind so not so bad. The afternoon ride from our lunch stop in Grassy Lake to Seven Persons was more difficult.- crosswinds into our faces made for a challenging 50 kms of riding. We came together as a team and made it through.

Our lunch stop was fabulous.  We were greeted along the road by around 20 kids all holding up signs they had made. Just like this one!

Our final leg of the day sent us slightly more northeast which resulted in a tailwind. Yehaa!  We ended up in Medicine hat and had a great dinner at Roscoe’s Pub.

Hoping for tailwinds for the next couple days
