It was an early morning on Sunday for me but the thought of hosting my own ride had me pretty excited! I really didn’t know what to expect numbers wise but I was just happy that we would have some participants for the launch of my t-shirt fundraiser! Little did I know that the parking lot would fill up with close to 40 riders ready to take on the 15km ride!!! As promised, it was a very leisurely ride that allowed people to chat and take in the beautiful lakefront trail. It is an amazing feeling being able to ride in a large group. It’s even better when everyone is there to support you and your dream. The t-shirts looked great on everybody and I must thank my good friend @Dann Tardiff for the design and Ozair Kamal from the T-shirt Arcade in Pickering Town Centre for printing the shirts! Originally I had only planned to sell the T-shirts online but thanks to Jill (my new manager) we were able to plan and pull off a ride with support from @Skiis and Biikes Toronto! Due to the last minute planning and short timeline many of you were not able to make the ride or to the Royal Oak after to purchase shirts. No need to worry though as shirts will be sold online on my website at!

There will be 2 rounds of ordering for the t-shirts with the first cut-off date being Thursday, June 28, 2018! We are doing this in order to know exactly how many shirts and what sizes are needed to be printed! There will be pick up locations for your ordered T-shirts on specified days in locations around the Durham region! (dates to be in early July) Anything outside of the Durham region will be an added $15 to cover shipping costs. All of the proceeds will go towards making me faster, stronger and a better cyclist in order to chase down the dream of representing my Country in the Paralympics!
