First fundraiser of the year… a.k.a, BEER!

Well, this is exciting. Before it gets too cold, the Century Club is going to be making one last group ride.

On October 12th, we have a scheduled a brisk – in temperature, if not pace – 50km ride from Waterdown to the beautiful Wellington Brewery and we will celebrate with a tasting of delicious, local microbrews.

The space is limited; the tasting room holds only 50 people, so sign up early. Tickets are 20 dollars and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to our team’s fundraising effort.

For more details, check out this fancy pants Facebook event we made.

Over $50,000 Raised

With only 4 days to go the team surpassed $50,000.00 in fundraising, it is a great accomplishment.

We also managed to get out for a team ride just one week before the big show. Check out the video for some highlights.

Team Spin + $47,000.00

We had a team spin today, our first team ride. It was a fantastic day with sunshine good conversation, and some very good people who have raised more than $47,000.00 for the PMH.

Below is the team during our mid-ride break.

L-R: Laura, Brian, Joe (back), Tony (front), Andy, Jason, & Bryan

Look out $44,000.00

……we are coming after you

Our team is creeping up on our goal… 84% there. The next big milestone will be $45,000 and then $50,000.

Less than two weeks until we ride, please help us in the final push to our goal.

RTCC – Training Run

Sunday I made the trek down to Niagara Falls for the first #RTCC Training ride. I picked the 50 km ride, but a wrong turn made it a nice and breezy 61. I’d guess there were about 150 people out, with rides ranging from 25-75 km, and the weather was perfect.

Congrats Рand thanks Рto The Ontario Ride for the excellent support on the ride. All intersections had people stopping traffic, and the tent had drinks and snacks.

Honestly, it’s easy to be thankful when you are out in the sun, but the couple of hours flew by as I met people and we shared stories about fund raising, fighting this disease and the small talk that we often take for granted.

Really excited for the ride now…
