Yesterday I drove around the city looking for cardboard at various furniture and appliance stores to build a disposable box to ship my bike.  I went to four different stores with no luck and, on the way home, resigned to using my fancy bike suitcase (which I would then have to ship back), I thought - maybe the bike store (www.eriksbikeshop.com) has a box that would work - it was a "why didn't I think of that earlier" moment...  I went in to the store and the manager Demian, who knows me by name now, said "oh yah! give me a minute" - he went to the back and came out with the perfect box.  Then I went home and started packing - check out the pics of the disassembly and packing on my equipment page.  9 days and counting!

    Two Wheels and a Heartbeat

    A long time personal dream and now a worthy cause.

    Huntington's disease has profoundly impacted my family and until recently I didn't even know about it. When I suggested to my dad that I was going to ride across Canada and was looking for a cause he suggested The Huntington Society. Now I'm learning a lot about the disease, the people it affects, and my family. Help find a cure with your donation to the Huntington Society of Canada.

    How much could we raise if everyone donated $25 (charitable receipt provided automatically by email)
