I wanted to bring your attention to a very cool Canadian cycling event to raise money for and awareness about Juvenile Diabetes. I posted the message below in the Charity Rides section, but I want to make sure that Canadian Cyclists have an opportunity to get involved in the peleton which the riders are looking to have during the entire ride.
Tonight, I received the detailed city by city route, so please email me if you're interested.
Also, "Live" registration is apparently up and running on the website (www.teamH2V.com) to make it easier for you.
Here's the notice...
Team H2V::Coast to Coast
Hi there - we're looking for riders to support our coast to coast journey.
On September 14, 2007, Team H2V starts riding from Halifax to Vancouver - non-stop - and we're going to do it in just 9 days.
Why? To engage in an epic test of the human spirit and raise $1,000,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
I’m writing to ask for your help. To help us spread the word and get elite riders out on the road across Canada. While our 5 riders will have support vehicles, they need the kind of moral, mental and physical encouragement you can only get from riding with a group. We’re looking to Canada’s cycling elite to join and support Team H2V along our 6,000 km trans-Canada route. Please help us push the pace, raise awareness for JDRF and meet our $1,000,000 goal.
What’s in it for you, your club and/or your store?
- coast to coast media coverage
- raising the profile for cycling across the country
- building awareness and interest with other cycling associations and clubs
- helping a worthwhile cause
- helping fellow cyclists do something epic
