licence plate CYCLE4VR. So him.... He is all geared up with all the necessary cycle attire....
shoes, gloves, helmet, padded seat, cycle shorts with lots of padding..light bike, thin thin tires lol...
Here is their route...They began in Niagara Falls and end up in Hamilton 118 km 1st day....The weather was brutal for the riders high 90's in temperature and winds that felt like they were forever climbing mountains...NO breaks at all that 1st day...
But my David kept cycling....over 6 hours of riding a bicycle...
Here he is leaving me behind. I was his chauffeur, cheerleader,
dietician and let me tell you I too was exhausted lol.
This was my cheering sign....Who Hearts YOU, well me...( of course)
Not too many riders were paying attention..
their faces tell all...They were exhausted and frustrated
with dealing with the heat and very crazy winds...
My heart went out to them all....
I know it was taking its' toll on my David
when he called at the pit stops, he was winded
and I could sense in his voice this was a challenge that needed to be conquered.
I kept cheering them on.....
Finally David sees me and my cheering sign.
Even though weather conditions were not on their
side, his smile tells it all...
I refuelled him with more power balls
and a kiss...and off he was again...
Ok, 2nd day, we are up at the crack of dawn,
load up all his gear again, and this day
the weather was comfortable in the 70's and the wind
was on their backs nearly the whole trip
except for the last 5 miles....
another 118 km to 120 km
Many riders were smiling and waving and love
us cheerleaders...I was the only one at this resting point
so I cheered them and you could tell they were happy
to see me and happy with the conditions...
Here is my Man at half way mark....he is happy
today, and can talk without being winded
and happy that the weather conditions for all of them
And he completes another Ride to Conquer Cancer...
They raised over 17 million dollars for research
thanks to so many of you.
He truly is my hero. My life is so much better
with him in it. So thank you all who were his
He rocks my world every day!

There's one thank you that my brain dead fatigue left out - my biggest cheerleader through all of this has been my darling Samm. She has been there, supporting me, loving me & cheering me on throughout this whole journey. From making sure I was well fed (& boy, was I well fed), to chauffeuring me around, to always reassuring me that I could do this, even when I wondered myself if it was possible. She never let me believe it wasn't.
She was there through my treatment, through the tough times & she was there to celebrate the victories. While I still thank you all for your support, I truly couldn't have done it without her. Her surprise appearances at cheering stations with huge signs of love & encouragement made me laugh & brought new life to my legs & spirit. When I struggle, she's there to lean on. When I doubt, she's there to remind me of past victories and those to come. When I hurt, her loving touch always soothes my pain.
So thank you, my darling Sparky for always, always being there for me. "Love" just isn't a big enough word for what we have.
