Team training update from Vancouver
April 27
60 riders - ridiculous wind…to say the least.  (a true wind storm in Vancouver, and what does r2s do, we go for a bike ride)
86 km
Ride started in Vancouver and went out to the windy city of Richmond. Riding the Iona Airport road and out to steveston.
This ride tested the team in the winds, which is what we will get for sure leaving Hope.  Anchor that butt in the saddle and pedal.
SAG support Kerry, Jannie, Satbir and Linda
Thanks to Rich for the route and leading the group thru Richmond and Vancouver.
News update - The Kunzli welcomed a new baby girl, 3 weeks early.  Congratulation to Aimee, Evan, and big sister Renée.
April 28 - Bridge Brunch fundraiser.  
Thanks to Bridges Restaurant and Tap and Barrel for hosting this amazing event for the 8th year.  Sold-out at 173.
All money from the tickets, and auction items raised over $22,000.
Not a penny is used to pay for the food, the servers, the chefs, the venue, the auction items or even the Auctioneer who comes up from Arizona on his own dime and pays for his own ticket.
