From the Canada NewsWire:
A world record may crumble as Ross Rader gears up to ride from Ottawa to Windsor in less than 36 hours. Setting out at 10:00 AM on Friday, May 8, Rader will attempt to break the world record for a solo crossing of Ontario on a bicycle. The current record of 35 hours, 43 minutes was set in 1987 by Ron Dossenbach of Windsor, Ontario.
Rader is making the cross-Ontario attempt 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.”
