So I did a potentially silly thing the other day. I agreed to ride 70 Km on a Saturday around a lake. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but the subsequent bike rides I’ve taken have really done a number on my heiny. So, the plan is to ride a bit everyday, and hope that by October 1, I’ll have some callouses to protect me.
The reason I’m doing it is to support the Ride for Refuge, an organization that helps the cause of people who are marginalized, displaced and needing support. In addition, I’m able to partner with Burnt Thicket Theatre and Raise Their Voice, two organizations that do great work, and are currently raising moolah to put Andrew Kooman’s play She Has a Name in theatres across North America.
Great idea? Well, my body might argue with that one on October 2. Great cause? You bet! If you’d like to sponsor me, check out my page at Ride For Refuge. Every little bit helps!
