Dopo Bici cycling club had a huge presence at the Prospera Fondo Axel Merckx this past weekend. There were close to 40 participants from my club. The club's race team Pender Racing Men's and Women's both took the overall team titles. We had the third overall men's finisher (me...) and the first overall women's finisher (Dee Thomson) as well.
The event kicked off Saturday with the Piccolo Fondo. This was a kid's event and my son Kaleb and long time GWA client Dave Barr's son Nick did the 3 year old run bike race. It was a hoot, little kids on run bikes everywhere. Dave's daughter Emmy did the 5 year old pedal bike race. My daughter Keira was cheering like crazy (she's only 1 year old no race for her yet).
As most of you know cycling has become a passion of mine and it's great to be able to do an event that the entire family can enjoy.
Congratulations to all the GWA clients and Dopo Bici members who completed the event.
