An interview with Michell Sirio, who is a cancer survivor who has done the Ride to Conquer Cancer every year since 2008. The Ride to Conquer Cancer in Canada has raised over $262 million for cancer research in Canada, changing the future of the disease locally and all over the world.
Deciding to do a charity ride is a great way to get involved and get fit. The fixed date for the cycling event gives you a get-fit goal to aim for, and the motivation to keep going with your cycling training plan (you don’t want to end up pushing your bike uphill on the day, if you can avoid it). Most charity bike rides in the USA and Canada take place during the summer, so you have the early part of the year to start training and getting fit for your chosen charity ride.
