T'Railway Trio+1

Cathy Harnum, Glenn Smith, Jim Woodrow and Harry Spurrell (Support on Quad) are fat biking across the province from Port aux Basque to St. John’s on the T’railway. The T'Railway Trio+1 will travel from west to east starting in Port aux Basques on Sunday August 25 and arriving in St. John's 2 weeks later on Sunday September 8. The total distance is 883 kilometers, and with 14 days riding that's an average of 63k per day. Of course some days will be longer and some will be shorter!
Cathy says "We have decided to raise some funds for Alzheimers, for me it is in memory of my Mom who had Alzheimers. I am attaching a link www.dementianl.ca where you may go to make a donation. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. All I ask is that in the “Additional Comments” section you indicate that it is for “Trailway Trio + 1."
You can follow them as they bike across the province. Good luck and have a great ride!
