My target 200 kms

Goals have been met!

I originally set my mileage goal at 100, then I doubled it to 200.  I had also originally set my fundraising goal at $100 then also double that too. 

It's about half way through the month and I've met BOTH goals.  I'm going to keep peddling and see where this takes me, but in Northeastern Ontario, I have to pick and choose the days I can ride. 

 People fighting Parkinson's do not get to pick and choose their days. That's why I'm going to continue to ride when I can this month.  

FALL is coming

If it’s not the temperature, it’s the smells, or the shorter days.  No matter what the indicator, FALL is coming.  I took advantage of a dry, albeit cool day today to get out and get some KMS in for this cause.  

It’s a great time of year to visit farm stands (or at least scope them out on your ride).  Many people who have worked hard all year to produce local foods are looking for support.  Farm to table is a great wat to eat healthy and support local farmers.

Fund Raising Goal Doubled!

I have been blessed with some very generous donations that allowed me to meet my goal, and it’s only September 2nd.  I’m following the same path that I did with my mileage goal and I’m doubling my fund raising goals from $100 to $200.

Thank you again for your support.

Love to all!

Life at the Speed of Bike

Call me a fair-weather rider if you want, but it was 8 degrees with a north wind this morning. I waited for a sweltering 10 before I went out. The wind didn’t yield, but neither did I.

When you’re travelling at the speed of bike you see some things that faster vehicles don’t see. These two came and greeted me at the fence line as I was riding by, so I stopped to say hi back and they posed for a moment with me.  I’m not certain if they’re llamas or alpacas (I think the former) but they were interested in what I was, so I stopped and let them get a good look. 😁

01 September

First day of the month is as good a day as any to get out for a quick morning ride. 

First ride in my Wounded Warrior - Ride For Mental Health kit from the ride I did last month.

So far, so good on Pedaling for Parkinson’s.

Love to all!

Mileage Goal Doubled

I've been able to get out for a couple of nice rides already and noted that I was quickly approaching my original 100 km distance goal.  SO I DOUBLED IT!

I'll try to hit 200 (or more) before the end of September.  

Thanks for the support.  Love to all!

FIrst Rides

This is my first year riding in this event.  I'm looking forward to bringing awareness to this disease and to raising funds towards helping those who are battling it and/or working towards a cure.  I'll keep posting updates to my rides as I put the kms in.  I've set a modest goal to start but will increase it if/when I surpass it.  

Thanks for the support.

I'm going the distance for Pedaling for Parkinson's

This summer I am taking part in Pedaling for Parkinson's - a cycling event that was created to raise awareness about Parkinson's and raise funds for research. Your donations support the Pedaling for Parkinson’s Research Grant and the Parkinson Canada Research Program.

As part of the event, I’ve set a challenging personal distance goal and am tracking my miles.

Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disease. Movement is normally controlled by dopamine, a chemical that carries signals between the nerves in the brain. When cells that normally produce dopamine die, the symptoms of Parkinson's appear. Currently, there is no cure. The need is only increasing. More than 25 Canadians are diagnosed with Parkinson's every day; more than one person every hour. By 2031, the number of people living with Parkinson’s in Canada will more than double. Your support fuels the increasing need for research to improve quality of life and ultimately find a cure.

With your support we can help Parkinson Canada realize their vision of a better life today for Canadians living with Parkinson's; a world without Parkinson's tomorrow.
