How excited would you be to face one of the longest and toughest climbs in Ontario? The Morrison Hershfield Racing Team was up for that challenge on Saturday, May 12th.
To kick off their cycling season, the Morrison Hershfield Racing Team participated in the 25th Annual Paris to Ancaster Bike Race (P2A), a fundraiser for the St. Joseph’s Healthcare Foundation. The race took place over some very tough terrain and as the riders can attest, it was a memorable experience!
In early April, Morrison Hershfield sponsored a cycling team of passionate and fierce competitors, comprised of our employees along with non-MH’ers to round out the group. The team would compete in three cycling races throughout the season, in preparation for the Provincial Championships in June.

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.
“It was a cold, windy, rainy day that didn’t
let up until the very end of the ride.”
