Ride to Conquer Cancer

So, in a moment of madness/peer pressure/decision to get in better shape, I signed up for the Ride to Conquer Cancer - a two day, 200 km bike ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls to raise money for cancer research at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

So, dear reader, I am asking you to sponsor me for the ride. It is for a good cause, and almost everyone knows someone whose lives have been touched by cancer. Please go to

I am one of the last people you might expect to do this sort of thing - but I have been training (albeit sporadically and less-than successfully), and I intend to complete the trip, even if it kills me ;) .

(I am part of Team TdF - http://www.conquercancer.ca/site/TR/Events/Toronto2009?pg=team&fr_id=1261&team_id=6780 - while its not a Gilbert's team, there are about 6 or 7 of us on the team )
