Last Ride of the Season!
It's the last few weeks before the Pedaling for Parkinson's Fundraising campaign wraps up! Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. I am grateful for this support that has put me just short of first place on the fundraising leaderboard!
As for the riding, I've been occupied helping my parents settle in their new place. The are happy to be there, the place is brighter and safer with no stairs!
Still managed to get a few rides in and hopefully a few more before November rolls around!
Busy September! Moving the parents and a downsizing auction.
Happy Birthday Dad!
Thanks, Studio on the Hill!
Besides the Tri, and big ride last week, I started going back to Studio on the Hill. It's the ceramics studio that I had been hanging around Thursday evenings before the pandemic.
Longest ride yet!
Dad helps with a big push!
This summer and fall I'm helping Parkinson Canada with their $100,000, 100,000 Km fundraising Challenge. I'll be logging my rides to contribute to this, but the big day for me will be a 85km ride for my Dad's 85th birthday on Sept 15th.

Here's a picture from another birthday ride this weekend with one of my best cycling friends Francis and crew. We rode out to Streetsville. Which is now known to us as Treatsville on account of some great empanadas and pastries by:
$500 achieved let's keep the momentum going.
P.S. The bike in the picture is the one I got the day before I decided to do this fundraiser, so you're giving me all the more reason to get out there on this beast!
85km on Sept 15 for my Dad's 85th. I'm going the distance for Pedaling for Parkinson's.
I’m keeping the research cadence strong by Pedaling for Parkinson’s. As part of the event, I’ve set a goal of riding 85KM on Sept 15, 2022, my Dad's 85th birthday. I'll be tracking my kms to contribute to Parkinson Canada's 100,000km cross-Canada goal.
Parkinson Canada's mission is to transform the lives of people living with Parkinson’s. They fund critical research, provide information and support, increase awareness and advocates for improved health care outcomes for people living with Parkinson's across Canada.
More than 100,000 Canadians live with Parkinson’s, a number expected to increase substantially in the coming years, with 30 Canadians diagnosed each day. Parkinson’s is a disease that affects not only individuals, but also families, friends and care partners who come together to manage the realities of Parkinson’s.
Help me ensure Parkinson Canada is here for Canadians living with Parkinson’s today – while funding research into better treatments and one day, a cure.
Please support my Pedaling for Parkinson’s fundraiser. Together, we can have an immeasurable impact on the research being done, the services being offered, and the people being helped every day.
