... riding the big bike in Ottawa ...

Two days before the BIG RIDE to “Conquer Cancer” from Vancouver to Seattle.  The bike is all tuned up.  The weather forecast for Sunday is not looking great.   Chance of rain +60%.  Saturday weather looks perfect for a long bike ride.  Clouds & Sun.  

I must have the Big Rider at Guildford by 6 AM on Saturday morning.  Extended an invitation to my nephew and brother to come out for the “send off.”  Dale took it as a dare.  I have not heard from Bruce.  CHICKENS!   Actually Dale might be there.  I will be watching!  If I have to be up by 4:30 AM …. 

More sponsorship money has come in.  Way to go everyone!   The only thing left to do – get a mattress pad for tent city and pack the bags.  Whew…..  think we have everything. 

Lola’s for breakfast on Sunday and the fabulous Georgian Room for breakfast on Monday. ( The Fairmont hotel chain is one of the sponsers for the Conquer Cancer ride.  We get a great room rate.)   The Fairmont Olympic in Seattle is a beautiful heritage hotel.   When you are ready to drive away, they give you chocolate chip cookies, ice cold milk and water.  How great is that.  A snack for the long drive home.  In the meantime, we are resting up for the big ride…. Enjoy your day.
