Becel Heart&Stroke Ride for Heart

Morning all, Erin and I got up at the crack of stupid and boogied out here to get down town. Upon arrival I drove in circles looking for parking, but managed to work it out. We queued in our starting gate for a while and just chilled, realizing how great a bathroom would have been right there. This was a strong motivating factor for the first 1/4 of the race. The course itself joins with the Gardiner at the West end of the Ex, goes up and over the city, to the DVP, and then up the Don Valley. In spite of the smog the view was nice, and the weather great. We made good time and even rode along side Brad and Jodi for a while. The first rest stop was well timed, and then it was back on the road. We did the whole thing in between 1-2 hours, which is what we wanted, but we don't really have a good idea of when we started, so I can't be more actuate then that.

The great news is we raised over $400 dollars for the Heart and Stoke Foundation, and that is something everyone can feel good about.
