Press release, May 28, 2006:
On July 2nd, 2006, 18 year old Alex Bain will leave North Cape in a bid to be the first autistic to run Prince Edward Island tip to tip. Along the way, he hopes to raise $20/km for his almost 300 kilometre trek that will end in East Point on July 15th. The funds will be used to bring internationally recognized expert Dennis Debbaudt to PEI on September 27 2006, for a series of 3 seminars about what happens and what should happen in encounters between autistics, emergency first-responders and law-enforcement officers.

These are the extreme points we touched in 2003, the others mainly along a center line between St. Jacobs (top) and Galt (bottom right): 29 km, as the crow flies. I think the next step is to connect-the-dots in an elliptical route around the region, likely including the Grand River Trail (which should be completed by now).

A new bike (2002) and the beginning of my renewed interest in cycling. The comeback: my cycling partner (he's behind the camera) had previously survived 4 heart attacks, a quadruple bypass and would go on to lose over 50 pounds of extra weight (not all due to cycling); a very ordinary guy (and a dear friend) who simply did it.
