Rider

Nickname: 

DeeDee

Hometown: 

Edmonton, Alberta

Occupation: 

Membership Director, Don Wheaton Family YMCA

What is your bike's name?: 

Get going...

What is your level of experience with cycling?: 

Intermediate

How many years have you done the peloton ride?: 

This will be my 4th year

Why are you riding in the peloton?: 

It's hard not to...it's hands down, the best thing I've ever done!  The people are amazing, the ride is fantastic and the cause is something I truly believe in!

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

Easy...Hell Yeah, Rev Theory; My Body, Young the Giant; Rise Above This, Seether; Whatever Doesn't Kill Me, Finger Eleven and No Limit, 2 Unlimited...lemme hear ya say yeah!!

Who are you riding for?: 

 

Honestly the list is too long to write...everyone I know and care about who has been touched by cancer.

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

 

That I haven't forgotten how fortunate I am and to be grateful, everyday.

 

What are you looking forward to most?: 

Night rides, sleeping in a bed (not the van) and meeting up with the cancer warriors!

What is your biggest fear for this journey?: 

 

Hmmm, did someone say we have hills to climb??

How have you been affected by cancer?: 

 

Lets just say my eyes are open and I don't like what I see.  Too many people living with cancer are missing that one key piece, support after diagnosis and treatment.  Thank you Cancervive and Wellspring for all you do to fill that much needed gap!!

 

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

See my finger, see my thumb, see my peace sign, minus one!

What makes you pedal harder—(when the riding gets tough, what do you think about)?: 

First and always...my brother Les (love you).  My family and friends, my cancer warrior Debbie and the reality that my "suffering" on the bike is at the end of the day, no big deal.
