    one month away

    May 4, 2014
    Well we are about one month away from when my dad and I will begin our drive out to BC to start the ride.  Things are coming together well and I have been able to get a few more long rides in.  Today I was able to ride from Kitchener to Guelph and then on to Fergus before returning to Kitchener.  In total I rode about 100 km.  It was terribly windy again which made it a hard ride, which I keep telling myself is a good way to train.  

    One of the things we are still working on is accommodations along the route.  We have almost half of the route covered and there have been a lot of people volunteer to put us up for the night we are passing through their town.  I'm very appreciative of all that have offered their space, it is a huge help.  The following is a list of places and the dates we will be travelling through.  If you know of anyone living in those areas who would be willing to allow us to stay with them can you please let me know or pass on my info to them and they can make contact?  Please let me know if you have any questions.  If we are unable to secure other accommodations we will either camp or check into hotels but we would prefer to stay with people along the way as this would ensure that most of the money we raise will go directly to the charity I am riding for.  

    Im really looking forward to getting a few more long training rides in and then heading out to start the ride.
