This website is dedicated to Chris Greig's solo and unsupported bike ride across Canada in memory of his friend, Michael Webster, and to help fight cancer in the lives of children.

On June 1st, 2009, Chris, a 22 year old recent university graduate, left the shores of Vancouver, British Columbia, and reached St. John’s, Newfoundland, 46 days later, on July 16th. He biked 7486 kilometres.

This site houses all information about the trip and the charity. Though the journey is over, the fight to combat childhood cancer continues. You can join the cause by making a tax deductible online donation directly to the Hospital for Sick Children.

We hope Chris’ efforts have encouraged you to ask yourself what you can do to make a difference. Thanks for your interest and support.

Well everyone, the time has come.  Tomorrow morning Chris boards a flight for Vancouver and begins his journey across Canada- his journey for Mike and Mike's family.  From this point onward, you can read about his progress by viewing his live location or by reading his travel journal.  A note about the live location tool:  though his GPS unit is capable of delivering by-the-second location information, this will not happen because of the strain it puts on the device's battery.  Instead, Chris will update his position at regular intervals throughout the day.  Lastly, stay tuned for pictures and other content to be posted when the trip is complete.  Thanks!
