I was out and about on June 5 on the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner in Toronto and ran into some of our Escarpment-area residents and other notable people.

Hon. Kathleen Wynne rode in the event. She also happens to be the Ontario Minister of Transportation. How appropriate!

Erin local resident James Moore pedalled in the event with an electric bike.

The “Rude Riders” were out in force in tribute to Doug who passed away a few weeks ago from a heart problem. I can’t repeat why they are rude!

I found one of our advertisers riding with the Rude Riders, Angelo De Medicis, from Milton Home Hardware Building Centre.

Finally, the Niagara EMS rode as “Pedal Angels” wearing wings and halos. They collected $23,500 for defibrillators.

 

According to CTV morning news today (Monday), 13,000 cyclists took part and a record-breaking $3.9 million was raised.
