Cyclist to pedal 250 km perimeter of SDG in fundraiser

Joe McNamara plans to take to his bike on June 20, cycling 250 km to complete a perimeter ride of Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry, raising funds for charity.

The ride will support the Rotary Club of Cornwall and local food banks, and you can get on board in one of two ways: by sponsoring McNamara or by participating in a virtual ride of your own.

He plans to set off on his journey at 5:45 a.m., aiming to complete the course by sundown, around 8:50 p.m. on what is the longest day of the year, our summer solstice.

You can support McNamara by donating here.

Cyclists who’d like to register to join in a virtual ride on June 20 will receive a special patch, stick, and certificate in recognition of their achievement. A portion of the entry collected will be donated to the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise Foundation and distributed evenly to local food banks.

Cornwall Cycling Club moves online to keep members connected

During this time of isolation required to help contain the spread of COVID-19, the Cornwall Cycling Club has found a way for members to remain active, connecting online via the Zwift app.

As Joe McNamara tells me, the Cornwall Cycle Club is holding online rides on Zwift, a virtual ride app that members are using to get together on their regular ride days (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays) to ride as a group. Members are also connected on Discord to chat as they ride.

He says that the experience has “been pretty fun (not the same as real rides by any stretch) and has allowed us to feel connected until we can have group rides again.”
