After riding through the night, Ross Rader broke the record for cycling across Ontario today. Ã‚Â The previous record, held by Ron Dossenbach (pictured with Ross at left), was 35 hours 43 minutes. Ã‚Â 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 andÃ‚Â donationsÃ‚Â for childhood cancer charityÃ‚Â Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation.Ã‚Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“More than 1700 kids are going to be told that they have cancer this year,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Rader. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll ride to the ends of the earth if it will make a difference for even one child.Ã¢â‚¬Â
