I live and work and play on the North shore of Vancouver--so lucky!
I am riding for the second time in 2014. 2013 was a most amazing and inspiring experience and bears repeating. Last year, with in months either side of the event, I lost 2 friends and another lost her husband. My 21 year old daughter has lived with chronic myeloid leukemia for 5 years (she did the ride in 2012 with her Dad). My sister is a survivor of non Hodgkins lymphoma. I ride in honour of them and many others who have fought and won or fought and lost. We need to continue to fight. There is still so much to be learned and so many to be helped. I want to do what I can to help make a difference and I feel privileged to ride along side so many brave, compassionate, energetic and determined people.
