So this weekend was the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour. Back to back double metric centuries. Roughly translated this means 420km over two days. But See more

I'm riding Lap the Gats again this year. It's a friendly race around the Gatineau Park 'A' Loop to raise money for Research into Parkinson's Disease at the University of Ottawa. They've done some amazing things to take this disease down a peg. Like discovering that biking at high cadence can reduce the symptoms of the disease. Myself I expect to prove my hypothesis that riding four times around the 'A' Loop will raise your heart rate and make you sweat a lot. I guess that's why I'm doing the fundraising and not the research. This year I'm looking to raise $1100 -- three dollars for every metre of elevation you gain riding the 'A' Loop. Please give what you can. It's tax deductible and any amount is welcome.
