I am about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime - the Ride2Rio.
On February 14, 2012, I will climb aboard my bike saddle in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, point the front wheel south, and begin pedaling. I will not stop until I reach Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 130 or so days and some 11,200 kilometers later.
My final destination? The Rio+20 summit, also known as the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
I have never done anything like this before. Though I cycle daily, prior to this quest, the furthest I have ridden a bicycle in one stint is 120 kilometers.
I would like you to join me on this adventure. You can read postings, follow me on Twitter, check out photos on Instagram and like the Facebook Page.
Welcome to the Ride2Rio.
