We left Edmonton at about 08h30 for a 550km ride to Saskatoon. Unfortunately, although the road is great and we managed an average high speed which made for a quick ride, the route is long, straight and flat which means that there were zero photo opportunities and I suspect that it will continue to be like this until we enter back into the US at Minnesota!!

We are spending the night at the Holiday Inn and are planning an early night as we have an 830km ride to Winnipeg tomorrow which will be the longest ride Jax has done thus far so we need to be well rested before tackling this.

Our days rideā€¦

Be a sport Many of us have the means and wherewithal to undertake the dreams we want but elect to choose otherwise, many however, do not and that is the purpose of this plea. Afrika Tikkun (http://afrikatikkun.org// ) is a South African non governmental, non profit charity organisation run by the Lubner family that in essence does just that; re-provide the possibility to dream and to create the possibility of turning those dreams into a reality.

Unlike many pleas of this nature, I am not looking for any kind of sponsorship for my trip, but I am looking for your donation, regardless of its size to Afrika Tikkun. Please pledge generously as this is a fantastic cause that will assist them to provide food, care, education, health and social services to those that are desperately in need.
