As many of you know from my blog postings, I participated in the Ride for Heart event in Toronto last year (see previous pictures/blog entry here). It is not everyday you get a chance to ride on the Don Valley Parkway/Gardiner Expressway and the money that is raised goes toward the Heart and Stroke Foundation. I enjoyed the event a lot, and as such, I plan on participating again.
The Ride for Heart will take place this year on Sunday, June 3rd. There are cycling and rollerblading options to choose from, with several distance options to choose from as shown below:
I plan on doing the 50 km cycling route again. My goal is to improve upon my 1h 57m time last year to around the 1h 45 to 50m mark.
That said, I'm hoping to form a group of people to ride this event. We only need five people minimum to register as a group. I have included the rate fees below.
If you are interested in forming a group, let me know, and I'll take care of the rest. As a group, we do not have to all do the same distance (some may choose to do 25 km, others may choose the 50 km, the most ambitious will do the 75 km). Once we form a team, I'd be happy to lead some training rides through some of Toronto's extensive Bike Trail system.
