I am off the bike for 36 hours! Hurray!

6 days of 200km/day went really well. I have been able to stay on the bike with next to NO off bike time, other than a flat. If you are interested, visit Arvid’s stats for the detailed info.
Thanks to Ken and his friend and Nicole who came out to provide some km of drafting this week. Much appreciated.
Thanks to the Friesens, Loewens and a few others who came out to cheer me on. For many years I have been so privileged to hear, “Go Grandpa Go” shouted out of a passing van.
Paul even followed me on his electric Unicycle for a few km. That thing can do 30km/hour.  I don’t think I will ever try it, as it is enough of a challenge  to stay upright on two wheels, never mind one.

Monday at 5am the real work begins with 333km/day.

About MCF

Charles Mulli is a former street child from the slums of Kenya. He became extremely successful in business, but then God called him to give it all up and care for the orphaned and abandoned children still on the streets in Kenya. Charles Mulli is the founder and CEO of Mully Children's Family. To learn more about MCF, click here.

Arvid's Role

God has called me (Arvid) to be an ambassador for Mully Children's Family. I have chosen to use ultramarathon cycling as my platform from which to fulfill this calling. You can follow my ride, here, at www.grandpascan.com/ride. To read more about me and my story, click here.


I am asking you to help. I am trying to raise funds for the ongoing and capital expenses for the child mothers program at MCF. This program provides the critical life skills the young mothers need. To learn more about donating, click here.
