Kettle Valley Newsletter produced by the Kettle Valley Community - Issue 40 Spring 2011
Kettle Valley's Ken D'Albertanson Cycles Coast to Coast for Inn from the Cold
Ken D'Albertanson and his friend Jason Tomm are more than half way across Canada, as they make their way from Victoria to Nova Scotia – by bicycle! They started their journey on May 28th, and hope to arrive on Nova Scotia's north shore (Antigonish County) by the end of July. Their wives and kids will be meeting them there, and there is already a welcome party and fundraising event planned at a local lighthouse by the people of Arisaig, NS!
It's been an incredible (yet WET) journey so far, and the boys are keeping people updated on their progress and stories on their blog (www.sheltertoshelter.wordpress.com). They also have a Facebook page called "Shelter to Shelter". They have been meeting some of "Canada's Finest" when it comes to hospitality, so be sure to check it out!! They also picked up a third rider along the way – a UBC student who is cycling home from Vancouver to Toronto!
