Air Canada Raffle Ticket Winner

Hello Everyone,
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Air Canada Raffle ticket Draw in St. John's was Sinead Madden of Burlington Ontario.
Congratulations Sinead.

Thank you!!!!

Well, the 61 day pairing ended July 14th at the top of Signal hill at 1730 hrs. I'm home now, relaxing a little and getting back into the routine called life. I would like to let all those who have helped us along this journey know just how thankful I, and the coast2coast2cure team is for your support.

Whether your support came from a donation, sponsorship, or you helped with accommodations or any number of logistical tasks, a very heart felt Thank You! We could not have done it without you. At this time we have raised over $64,000. for Cancer research, and the web site will remain available for the next 4 to 6 weeks for donations and the occasional update.

I have been asked numerous times, what's next? Well, I will continue to fund raise for cancer research, but in just what capacity, I just don't know yet, but it will continue. As I sit and type this, the kids upstairs, still sleeping (8am, kids these days!). I think I'll go out to the garage and take the bike out of it's box, put it together and take it for a ride on the weekend. My neighbor said to me yesterday, I have now ruined casual bike riding for myself, and he's right, a short ride is now 80km long.

I would like to thank the Air Canada Pilot group, I have felt your support with every turn of the pedal. Air Canada and The Air Canada Pilots Association, have been my biggest corporate sponsors, this endeavor would never have gotten off the ground had it not been for your support.

There are a few people that I would like to publicly Thank: Bob Mapson, Mark Tobin, Paul Francoeur, Chris Cox, and Barry Gillingham. Thank you gentleman, you all know the big rolls you played over the last two months, I hope to sit down and raise a glass with you soon.

Glen's Final Day and Tentative Schedule

After many long days and steep hills (and strong winds , rain , flat tires, broken iPods, lost GPS, yada yada yada) Glen will be arriving in St.John's, NL on July 14th (tomorrow!).

If you are in the St. John's area you can see Glen do his final climb up the slopes of Signal Hill. The exact time is dependant on weather and the ferry, but we are expecting Glen arriving sometime between 4:30 and 6:00pm. Hopefully on the earlier side, but he is riding his bike across the Avalon penninsula after all !

Afterwards it's a big celebration on George St at Rob Roy's with lots of great music and food after 7:30ish.

Go cheer him on as he climbs the last hill !

Go Glen Go !

Thank you to Christena Rouse at the Fairisle Motel for your generous contribution of the 2 rooms, it was very much appreciated.

Thank you to Charlene of Bayside Bakery and Cafe, for your generous contribution of the free dinner last night and the free breakfast today,We appreciate all of your support and great service.The homefries were a big hit.

Glen had 10 km to go to the ferry. He was riding like this was his last leg.

Glen made it up Kelly's mountain in record time averaging about 20-25 km/ hour. The Cape Breton Post photographer was here taking pictures of him coming up the mountain.

Glen gets a police escort by Constable Paul Ratchford all the way to the Newfoundland Ferry. Thank you Sir for your assistance.

Norm and Dorothy Murnaghan greet us at the lookout on the way down the mountain. Thank you so much for the lunch and your amazing hospitality. We really appreciated your support.
Glen is crossing the bridge into North Sydney

One more leg.

Norm, Dorothy, Glen, Zara, Sonia and Joanne at Norm's cottage.

See you all in Torbay.

Glen, Kevin and his son, Jack.

The Baxbys and Dorans in front of Victoria Square in Truro at the start of the day.

Kevin's sister and her partner meet us on the road.

The rewards from going uphill!!

Glen and Kevin are working hard to go uphill. Much harder than going down.

Nice shot of the boys going downhill and enjoying every minute of it.

This is the view Deb and JoJo had for the last 2 days. Not bad eh ladies???

Three more days!!!!
