Thank you all very much for all your support of our Ride to Conquer Cancer!! Truly an amazing event!!
Saturday June 19th, was a picture perfect riding day… sunny, dry and not too hot! It began with a scenic ride through Cloverdale and onto the border which was well organized and quite a sight to see as 2200 riders in yellow jerseys passed through to the United States. Had a wonderful ride all the way to Mount Vernon , with the exception of a very strong head wind for the last 20-30 km. That was tough! We had a great night at camp, complete with a great bottle of red wine that we carefully packed along. Hit the tents early after our long day, 129km! Lots of snoring!! Up early Sunday and off again although the weather didn’t fully cooperate unfortunately. We had a fair bit of rain before lunch that cooled us but luckily for us the ensuing hill climbs warmed us back up ! We finished the ride exhausted and exhilarated!!
We all felt very fortunate to have been a part of this exceptional experience and we couldn’t have done it without you. As a collective team of 5 we raised approx. $17,000.00 for the BC Cancer Foundation!!
Again… Thank You,
Jennifer and Robin
