Cycling Across Canada For The Kids

13400kms, 125 days and 7 states for the 100 Mile club. First time riding a bike more than 1 full day! All started from a phone call , no planning at all. I said yes before I even had a bicycle. Terry Fox statue and I was honored to talk at Terry Fox run event at a school. Bears, wolfs, police chief helping me, millions flat tires and wrong seat for the first 6 weeks.

I rode my Surly Long Haul trucker bicycle across Canada. What a adventure.

I started in Stratford Connecticut USA on July 2nd, from there I headed North via Boston MA ( Point I finished the US run ) and up into Canada to St Johns/Cape Spear which is the most east point of Canada and North America. From there I did a u-turn and headed right across the country to Vancouver/Victoria BC.

Then I turned south back into the US and finish at Huntington Beach Pier California where I started the run. It was 1340000kms all together, A long long way but it was so much fun.

I raised donations and awareness for the 100 Mile Club again, I love everything about this charity and it was amazing to share it in Canada and get 3 schools signed up and kids running. It’s a program that gets kids setting goals then running and walking to make them come true. All about working together, getting moving and having fun.

I loved everyday out on the bike, it has lite a fire for more adventures and doing it self propelled and mixing it up is right up there now. The plans are already flowing in my head.
