B4B Updates

Hi everyone,

Lots is happening right now in the Bike for Bricks.  Here's the latest:

- We ordered clothes this week from Runners' Choice in Waterloo (yes, they do cycling and tris, too).  Should be in by the end of the month.  Then we will look GREAT.

don't know why it's sidways...
 - As you probably know, we launched our Facebook fan page.  We will use this as our primary social interface, especially for some fundraising opportunities and events this summer, and also for quick and easy photo sharing.  If you don't already, you can "like" us here

- We are working on some branding and graphic design.  Here is a logo that I sketched out: it's a bike in a brick.  We hope to update this soon!

- We have made a major change to our planned route.  Rather than ferry from Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques on the west coast of Newfoundland, we will instead ferry to Argentina, which will cut about 700km from the first leg of the trip.  This is a conservative move that we believe is more realistic (proper rest and mileage), but also fits our schedule better.  Win-win.

- Donatations will be accepted ASAP.  You'll know!  In the mean-time, get inspired by the work that Heartwood does. 

- We have tentatively set the date for our next major training run: we are looking at a bike-camping trip the weekend of May 25-27 up into the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario.  Until then, just cycling to work and around Waterloo Region.  Right now, I'm putting in about 300km/week and increasing steadily. 

That's it for now.  Thanks for reading,
