Why I’m cycling to end MS
My wife, Kimberly, was diagnosed with MS twenty five years ago. She has shown extreme courage in the face of this terrible disease. I have seen her struggle with physical challenges that the average person never gives a second thought to. Her brother, Kyle, was also recently diagnosed. Both siblings have had to leave professions that they enjoyed because of this awful condition.
The challenge I face by training and riding for this ride, pales in comparison with what an MS sufferer must endure. I have the good fortune of recovering my health after the ride is over. My discomfort will be temporary.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Bike, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.

Kicking off my 2018 Training
I am excited to change things up this year!
I have ridden in the Camrose ride for six years now, but this year, other commitments made it necessary for me to ride at a different time of year.
This September I will be riding in the Okanagan event. I am sure it will offer some challenging hill climbs. But, don't feel too bad for me, as there will be regular winery stops for rest breaks!
Here's to an early Spring to kick off this cycling training year.
