What is your level of experience with cycling?:
How many years have you done the peloton ride?:
Why are you riding in the peloton?:
Last year's ride was such a great experience, although ironically I learned off my mum's cancer diagnosis on day 3 of the ride, that I came back for more.
Our team did a good job in balancing riding hard, having fun and having a good laugh at each other and the rest of the peleton. I hope we can repeat that experience.
What are your top 5 inspirational songs you listen to while riding?:
I never listen to music when I am riding. Just the signing of my cogs, the clicking of my deraileur. Plus all the complaining and whining of the rest of my team :-)
Who are you riding for?:
What do you hope to get out of the experience this year?:
A sense of achievement, an awareness of Wellspring amongst my friends and colleagues, and the great work they do.
What are you looking forward to most?:
The camaraderie, seeing Canada and the Eastern U.S.
What is your biggest fear for this journey?:
Tommy riding into me
Darrell getting grumpy
Steven kicking my butt
How have you been affected by cancer?:
I have had several friends and family member get this wicked disease.
It just sucks.

What makes you pedal harder—(when the riding gets tough, what do you think about)?:
Although the riding may get touch, wet and cold, it does not compare to going through cancer treatment.
