Looking for a Bike!

I seem to do this every year.  Whether it's because I seem to always be too broke to buy a new bike, too Scottish to part with the money, or too guilty for buying new things (like a bike).

I like deals.  The best bike I ever bought cost me $10 the day of an Adventure Challenge and $90 throughout the 6 years I rode it.  The story is here: http://canuckplaceadventurechallenge.blogspot.ca/2008/02/malcolms-adventure-challenge-2007.html

Here is my new angle to getting a skookum bike:

A bike offer you can't refuse - $1000 (North Delta)

I know you have it hiding in your basement.

The mountain bike built for a person 6 feet tall. Light, disk brakes, top of the line components.
Maybe you bought this bike with aspirations of riding but this never panned out. The brand new bike that you spent $2000 on has been relegated to storage with no hope of parole.

Let me help. I want your bike. I want to free it from its condemned status; to feel the mud beneath its rubber and sand in its brakes.

Here is the deal: I will offer you $1000 for an unused bike of high pedigree and exceptional quality. $500 will be directed to you and the other $500 will be directed to Canuck Place Children's Hospice for my fundraising effort in the Innovative Fitness Adventure Challenge ( http://events.canuckplace.org/site/TR?fr_id=1050&pg=entry ). The donation will be in your name and you will receive a tax credit for your donation.

Any takers?

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
