The 2016 Silver Wheaton Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation is a beautiful two-day cycling journey, through Canada's Pacific region taking place August 27th & 28th. This is my 6th year with RTCC
It continues to be a great challenge but with ongoing determination/training/my newer Argon 18 carbon road bike (inclusive of clip in pedals - yikes!) & helmet & with your generosity a real impact will be made!

2016 - Riding again with my team TO THE MAX
2015 Well we almost got blown over in the windstorm, horrendous weather, however we could not be stopped! Thank goodness Mother Nature settled down on Sunday No longer riding solo as "Brave Souls"... more fun with/in the company of others. I met Connor Knickerbocker (TO THE MAX team captain) a couple of years ago, awesome young man with a GREAT BIG HEART and am very happy to join up with Connor and his great team mates for this years ride 2014 ... another successful fundraising & ride which was a unique experience unto itself; rain/shine & friendships with fellow riders further reinforced! 2011, 2012 & 2013 / $13K+ raised. Successfully rode '11 inaugural experience sick & rain soaked & '13 sunburn(first dry year!/Mt. Baker shone through in places where it had not been visible previously). Alternatively, '12 after training & fundraising to ride, 4 days prior to The Ride I switched to Crew/Route Marking 3 days in & out of the rain (broken foot). It takes a lot of volunteers to support The Ride!
Way above a personal sense of accomplishment managing to successfully peddle 240kms ... it is amazingly heartwarming to have the blessing of supportive donors, to participate along with the thousands of riders in this endeavor; helping cancer patients now & for generations to come.
My BFF Anne continues her ongoing & utterly incredible & determined journey against cancer; & in support, as I can & must, I continue to ride!
Sadly lost BFF Lorraine November 14, 2014. There are no words to adequately describe how much Lorraine meant, how much she taught, how much Lorraine is loved throughout her incredible life, during her battle with cancer and beyond. I had not cried for a while but the tears won't stop while writing here of the passing of Lorraine...she is in my heart to the day my last breath is taken...a beautiful soul and loved beyond words and this world. In memory of my extremely loving, generous, brave and cheerful friend I continue to ride; cheerfully in loving memory of Lorraine!
Please remember any online donations to The 2016 Ride are put to use by the BC Cancer Foundation immediately!
