|Gears, a bike shop that supports some
of the greatest elite athletes in the world has an annual thing called the
24-Hour Spin Event, which is like a charity bike-a-thon with pledges sponsoring
individuals and teams of riders. It's just that the bikes don't go anywhere.
When they got the idea to whip up a big concert to help entertain the troops
and add box office to the take, event head Kevin Wallace decided to include
one of his favourite bands ever: The Pursuit of Happiness. At last report,
this year's event raised about $400,000 for the Trillium Breast Cancer Fund
and the Toronto AIDS hospice Casey House. Congratulations to the gang at
Gears and all the hundreds of riders for making it such a great experience
And thanks to Dave Gilby for lending the webmaster his digital camera.
