Team H2V – Coast to Coast

Calling all MITs!

On September 14, 2007, Team H2V starts riding from Halifax to Vancouver – non-stop – and we’re going to do it in just 9 days.

Why? To engage in an epic test of the human spirit and raise $1,000,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

I’m writing to ask for your help. To help us spread the word and get elite riders out on the road in Manitoba, to create the Team H2V Peloton and see us thru the province. While our 5 riders will have support vehicles, they need the kind of moral, mental and physical encouragement you can only get from riding with a group. We’re looking to Canada’s cycling elite to join and support Team H2V along our 6,000 km trans-Canada route. Please help us push the pace, raise awareness for JDRF and meet our $1,000,000 goal.

What’s in it for the you, your club and/or your store?
– coast to coast media coverage
– raising the profile for cycling across the country
– building awareness and interest with other cycling associations and clubs
– helping a worthwhile cause
– helping fellow cyclists do something epic

Video #5 is a CTV story from this week.
Registration information, detailed route maps and schedules will be posted to our website soon.

I’ll be in Bromont, QC this week at the National Junior and Masters Track Championships to cheer on my brother and nephew – will any of you be there? If so, let me know and we can make a point to meet up.

All the best and please feel free to email me directly with questions:

  1. This sounds interesting. What do you guys think? Might be alot of fun to pace these guys from Winnipeg to Steinbach? Or maybe Steinbach to Falcon Lake (and then get someone to pick us up – you know how I love one way rides…)? Since they are riding 24×7 we might have some strange hours though…but that would just add to the adventure!

  2. Hi there 1 RJ:
    So, have you had any interest from your group? Our prelim schedule has Team H2V running through Winnipeg sometime between 8am and 10am on the morning of Sept 18th (this of course will be updated once we’re on the road). Having the MITs out would be a great boost for our riders – plus we’re looking for all the donations we can muster.
    Please visit our website and review the “Join the Peloton” page to register. Also, check out our videos on posted on YouTube – I like “The Promise” and the CTV report – here’s the link:
    Please feel free to share this with as many people as possible.

    Look forward to hearing from you!
