‘Rwanda riders’ thank Aldergrove for support

Riders thank Aldergrove for support of Wellspring Ride for Rwanda

The local Wellspring Ride for Rwanda team.


I want to thank you for printing the story about our recent Wellspring Ride for Rwanda. Peter and I had great support from the Aldergrove community, including from Heath and Dan at Cranky’s Bike Shop. I want to publicly thank them for partnering with Peter and me for our ride by fixing our bikes, changing tires, and making sure we had all the right equipment to make the 220 km trek.

I also want to thank Bill Ede from Aldergrove Soccer, who lent us a canopy tent and rain gear. The 60 riders were grateful for a dry place to stop on our first day when it poured rain all day and Peter and I kept drier than we may have been otherwise.

The photo is of the team of riders and support crew who came from Langley. Riders came from all across Canada. For more information on next year’s ride, www.lake2lake.org

Thank you also to those who gave financially to our ride. Peter and I reached our goal of raising $5,000, and in total, the ride brought in nearly $60,000. The full 100% of funds are going straight to Wellspring’s projects in schools in Rwanda. It’s great to see a community come together to support great causes.

Thank you, Aldergrove!

Janice Nikkel, Langley
