Sunday, May 7th, started out as a gloomy day that had us dreading the ride ahead. As a team, Morrison Hershfield registered fifteen participants for the CN Cycle for CHEO fundraiser; ten for the 70 km ride, three for the 35 km ride and two for the 15 km ride. While we had trained hard for the upcoming event, none of us were quite ready for the weather that greeted us at the starting line.

let up until the very end of the ride.”
