ross rader rides across ontario sets new cycling record for bicycle ride across the country breaks old record by ron dossenbachAfter riding through the night, Ross Rader broke the record for cycling across Ontario today.  The previous record, held by Ron Dossenbach (pictured with Ross at left), was 35 hours 43 minutes.  Ross battled rain and cold over the 874 km route from Ottawa to Windsor, setting a new record with an unofficial time of 35 hours even.

Rader made the ride to raise awareness and donations for childhood cancer charity Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation. “More than 1700 kids are going to be told that they have cancer this year,” says Rader. “I’ll ride to the ends of the earth if it will make a difference for even one child.”

I met Ross in Windsor and did the final 10K with him (along with 3 others) and I have got say he’s a super nice guy. Not to mention inspirational when you bust out that ride in stupid head wind like he had to contend with. Thanks Ross for coming to Windsor.
