Cycling for Solutions 2019
Cycling for Solutions returns for its fifth year in support of citizen science!
On Aug. 30, a group of amateur cyclists will once again embark on an ambitious, three-day, 500 km self-supported road trip from Winnipeg, Man. to IISD Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA) - a world-class freshwater research facility in northwestern Ontario. Continuing what has become an annual tradition, riders are paying their own expenses while accepting financial pledges for their efforts. All funds raised will be donated to LWF to support the Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network (LWCBMN).
Since the initiative began, ride supporters have donated almost $38,000. The 2019 fundraising goal has been set at $13,000 – if achieved, Cycling for Solutions will have successfully raised over $50,000 in just five years!
Support these hard-working cyclists – and citizen science – by donating to Cycling for Solutions V through CanadaHelps. While you’re there, please consider leaving words of encouragement for the cyclists in the “Message for Lake Winnipeg Foundation” comment field; all messages will be shared with the riders. Pledges can also be made by calling LWF’s office, 204-956-0436.
A Cycling for Solutions 2019 Facebook event page has been set up, where riders will aim to provide updates from the road.
Good luck to Paul, Stephanie, Mike, Stephen, Bruce, Roger and Peter!
