This week, my friend Stuart begins an epic ride across Canada. He is riding in the Sea to Sea ride sponsored by World Renew to raise funds in an effort to bring an end to poverty.
Stuart is riding a bike that he got from us. It is an Opus Legato, part of the set that J and I bought when we first started bike touring a few years ago. We moved on to touring on our Santana tandem right after the maiden trip for those bikes around Lake Ontario. Stuart and Marg took the bikes on a tour to Ottawa last summer and caught the bike touring bug. Now Stuart, having made the bike his own, is poised to begin a nearly 7000 km journey.
Our prayers for Stuart are for safety, security, and that he will have a really great time over the next weeks.
