Cyclebetes National Relay 2011

I was very fortunate to be able to ride as part of the Cyclebetes National Relay in 2010, and I am thrilled to be riding in the relay again in 2011.To add to the excitement this year is a change in the route itself.  This year's relay will go from western Canada to eastern Canada, specifically from Vancouver, BC to Halifax, NS (previous relays went east to west, from Halifax to Vancouver in 2009, and Halifax to Victoria in 2010). As part of the western Canadian team, we will kick-off the ride here  in Vancouver, BC, on August 13th and will ride to Calgary, AB, a distance of 1045km (627 miles), over a 4 day period.

The National Relay is, without a doubt, the most powerful and rewarding event I have ever been involved with, and I will be blogging about my complete experience this year, from pre-ride training, to fundraising, to nutrition, to my daily reflections during the ride itself.

This year's campaign is fully underway, but there are still a few spots open for riders who wish to join in on this life-altering experience!
