Ride the Rockies for Epilepsy

I invite you to join Ride the Rockies for Epilepsy. To hopefully benefit the Seizure Monitoring Unit at Foothills Hospital which is part of Clinic Neuroscience, Alberta. 

Todate, their are two nutritional companies supporting the ride, each in their limited way. There will be no crew or caravan to carry your equipment or look after your personal needs. You are responsible to carry all your camping equipment, food and personal effects on your bike. There will be basic mechanical support for the bike. We will be stopping at various towns and cities along the way. You may want to send nutritional needs sent to various places along the way to lighten your load, that is up to you. From your saddle you will see some of the most amazing scenery and views of a lifetime. Experience the Canadian Rockies few ever will, meet new people in similar situations and best of all, have fun. As well, we will raising a little funds to help The Clinical Neuroscience, Epilepsy Program, Alberta. Those with epilepsy, their friends, family, or anyone else who want to ride is invited to join. You can take part of any leg of the ride to suit your schedule and location. Ride a few days, a week or the complete Tour. Your choice! 

I want to make clear that at times a ride of this type will be tough, after all it is the Canadian Rockies. I don't expect dozens of people will take this ride on. If you have any moment of excitement to do the ride please do, you will not regret the opportunity. Registering early! 
Also, I want to stress there is no minimum amount of money needed to be raised in order to join the ride. Having been diagnosed with epilepsy at age 60 I know what it may take for others to 'get down the road' and no one will be dropped even if it means staying another day somewhere along the route as a recovery day. This ride is open to anyone wanting to take part. You don't have to have epilepsy in the family. If you want to take part, well that is all that is required.
