What is your bike's name?: 

The Lemon.

What is your level of experience with cycling?: 

Intermediate

How many years have you done the peloton ride?: 

First year.

Why are you riding in the peloton?: 

My father and mother-in-law are both cancer survivors and it is their example, and those of other friends and relatives who are bravely battling various forms of cancer, that remind me of the critical importance of funding continuing advances not only in the detection and treatment of cancer, but also programs focusing on the emotional, psychological and social support of people living with cancer. I am riding in the Peloton to raise awareness (and hopefully dollars) for cancer programs.

What are your top 5 inspirational songs you listen to while riding?: 

I'm not sure how inspirational they are, but here they are: "Bicycle Race" - Queen, "Tour de France" - Kraftwerk, Because you can't, you won't, and you don't stop" - Beastie Boys, "TNT" - AC/DC.

Who are you riding for?: 

I'm riding for those who are unable to ride due to cancer.

What do you hope to get out of the experience this year?: 

I hope to contribute in some small way to Wellspring Calgary and the cancer community at large.

What are you looking forward to most?: 

Raising awareness for a very worthwhile cause. I am also looking forward to riding through Southern Quebec and Maine in the fall.

What is your biggest fear for this journey?: 

Mechanical difficulties and saddle sores.

If cancer walked into the room, what would you say to it?: 

Get out!
