My Story

29 May 2024

Hello,

My name is Michael Riley and I am honored to be taking part in The Great Cycle Challenge for a forth year, and as a Champion Rider no less!

The Great Cycle Challenge (GCC) is a nation wide cycling event that raises awareness and money for cancer research at SickKids Hospital. This year we have 13,300 riders and counting!!

100% of donation go directly toward SickKids hospital.

I started this event back in 2021. Being a new father to my beautiful daughter Emma, priorities changed very quickly in my life. I realized how fortunate I was to have a healthy child. Sadly this is not the case for everyone. Since having a child, I have a drive to help those I can with events like the GCC.

With $7,300 raised and 640Km ridden in 2021 and $16,356 raised with 1018km ridden in 2022 , then in 2023 I went bigger, riding 1,255 KM and raising $23,067 . I'm very excited to share my next big adventure for such an amazing cause.

This year I plan on going even bigger yet again, riding at least 1500km and to raise $25,000 or more with a grand ride around the circumference of Lake Ontario. Yup, thats 900km that I will be bike packing over 6 days.

I'm so excited and grateful to be apart of this amazing event, and for many, many more years to come!

Thank you everyone.

    “Good Morning Todd and Marcia. WoW, what an incredibly generous donation you have made. Thank you!! And thank you for being my first donor for the 2024 Season. This year will be the biggest yet. I know, with the support of people like you two, we will smash my $25,000 goal. This charity has become such an important part of my life and identity and not just for the month of August, but every single day. I spend hundreds of hours training for long distance riding. This year i will be riding the circumference of Lake Ontario. That's 900km that I will complete over 6-7 days. I carry all my equipment on my bike so that i can camp each night. Bikepacking they call it. Each day requires about 10 hours of non stop riding, rain or shine. Looking forward to seeing you in a couple weeks. Have a fantastic Day.”
