Soup Break

We’re stopped at the Tim Hortons on Pembina for some chili. It’s cold out there, and the 501k have taken their toll on city streets.

Add that to this for one CRAZY LONG RIDE.Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 5.35.41 AM
Arvid’s hit the 450 km mark, after visiting a number of different pit-stops, kissing babies (Ok, no – there were no babies)  and shaking hands (with, ahem, MAYOR Brian Bowman). Now we’ve got some riding and driving ahead of us…

Rain

We were delayed in getting to Arvid when the rain hit, so he got wet for about twenty minutes. At the speeds he travels it’s (no joke) sometimes hard to catch him. He gets through a lot of jams faster than we can. Anyway, rain is happening but it doesn’t stop him!

Heading through Fort Whyte!

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. This year I will be cycling North to South in Canada and the US. The journey starts July 7, 2015 in Deadhorse, Alaska. You can follow my ride, here, at www.grandpascan.com/ride.

I am asking you to help. I am trying to raise $100 for each of the 2500 kids presently at MCF. This money will go towards the purchase of food. To learn more about donating, click here.
