Ride to Conquer Cancer – Fabio’s Experience

Bike Ride to Conquer cancer 

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a cycling journey, a fundraising race run by thousands of cyclists every year in British Columbia. Fabio and Iraj,  the owners of  Yes Cycle Rental Shop, have been training hard to participate in the 9th annual ride to conquer cancer on August 26-27, 2017.

Fabio’s father and father-in-law have been affected by cancer. It is a personal challenge to be participating and raising fund for the race. Fabio & Iraj will raise money this year to participate in the race, they need to:

  • Raise a minimum of CA$ 2,500.
  • Train to ride over 300 kilometers  from Vancouver to Seattle.

Yes Cycle team is sponsoring the team. Fabio participated in the race in 2015. Yes Cycle team volunteered to offer Bike Valet service during the Fresh air cinema every tuesday in summer. All funds raised went to the charity. The race raised over 7 million dollars with over 2,084 other participants to conquer cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fabio personal experience

We asked Fabio to share his personal experience:

“ I enjoyed talking and sharing experiences with all the incredible people participating in the race. We all have the common goal to the finish this journey.  Ride to Conquer Cancer is also run by riders affected by the disease. It was pouring rain with heavy storm and up to 80km/h wind ,  very hard situation but I never give up for the goal .

There are 4 different routes with different levels of difficulties. Every 30 km the organisers are here to cheer you up with refreshment. The energy is absolutely positive during the two days of the race.

Finishing the challenge is such a big achievement for all of us and we are proud to be actively raising found and helping at our level to participate in curing this disease. “
