When Mike McClary decided to take up cycling after purchasing his first bike in 2018, he never imagined he would participate in a 200km ride that same year. When his friend found out about his new hobby, he encouraged Mike to participate in the Tour de Cure, a cycling fundraiser supporting the BC Cancer Foundation.
“When my friend found out that I got a bike, he asked me to join the team,” Mike recalls. “I was intrigued by the challenge of riding over 200km in two days and seeing if I could push myself to those limits. As a newbie rider, it seemed like an impossible task, but I eventually committed to join after a lot of encouragement.”
