Why I’m cycling to end MS
My brother has MS, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be riding for MS as a group this year. However, I have decided to ride some local trailways: Elora-Cataract, Kissing Bridge and/or Cambridge-Paris (and beyond). That should get me well over the 150 km that I would ride in the Grand Bend-London ride. I will accomplish this over the summer and will post updates and photos on my personal page.
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.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
On Thursday, July 30, 2020, I completed my first MS Ride of the summer by biking the rail trail from Cambridge to Brantford and back. 52 km/3 hours. It was a beautiful day for a ride. I have done parts of this trail before. It follows the abandoned Lake Erie and Northern rail corridor and there are links to other trails when you get to Brantford. There are some great views over the Grand River and many springs along the way.
I will do another ride this week (weather permitting). These rides are for MS and are in addition to the 25 km that I ride every day anyhow.
