I keep forgetting to comment on this year’s Becel Ride for Heart. You can be sure that I finished it, although I almost missed the start time. Vic’s rear tire suffered a puncture and I accompanied him back to the Cyclepath tent to have it replaced. The pit crew finished the repair some five minutes before the cutoff time.
This year’s ride was much easier than last year’s, mostly because there was no wind. My time for the 50k was just over 90 minutes, a full half-hour less than last year’s effort. That time will be difficult to beat next year without switching to a faster bike.
Thanks to everyone who sponsored my ride. Sadly, donations this year were less than half last year’s total. I blame myself for not being as vigilant.
