Yes, you too can kick ass like D’Arcy Norman…

Maybe you, like me, have been inspired by D’Arcy Norman to try to take a picture a day. And maybe you, like me, have been inspired by D’Arcy to ride your bike more often.

And maybe you, like me, have missed days in the 365 Days photo challenge; and maybe you, like me, wimp out on the biking when the weather gets cold or wet, or when your bike gets stolen…

And you just have to admit to yourself that you will never be as hardcore as D’Arcy Norman. Man, I’ve been there… every day.

But now you can romp with D’Arcy on his maddest adventure yet:

I just registered to participate in the 2009 Alberta Ride to Conquer Cancer. It’s an epic 2 day, 200km bike ride in the Rocky Mountains west of Calgary, with riders raising funds to support the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

My goal is to raise $2500. But I need your help. If you can, please sponsor me.

I will be training for the ride, to build up to the longer distances and mountains that will be part of it. It’s going to be one hell of a challenge, but it’s also going to be well worth it.

Buy the ticket, take the ride… Like another amigo, the D-Man shows us how it is done.

    Jeremy, your contribution made writing this post worthwhile all on its own. Many thanks.
