Cyclist Breaks Cross-Ontario Cycling Record

    TORONTO, May 11 /CNW/ - Exhausted but smiling broadly, Toronto cyclist
Ross Rader arrived at Windsor City Hall yesterday afternoon, setting a new
cross-Ontario cycling record. Riding from Ottawa to Windsor in an unofficial
time of 34 hours and 57 minutes, Rader battled through rainstorms and winds
gusting to 50 kilometers an hour.
    The record-breaking ride raised awareness and donations for childhood
cancer charity Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation. "In the time it took
me to ride my bike across our province," Rader says, "seven Canadian kids were
told they have cancer, and seven families' lives were changed forever. They
need our help." People stopped Rader's crew along the route to offer donations
to the charity.
    Rader was met in Windsor by Ron Dossenbach, who set the previous cross-
Ontario record. The new record is pending certification by the Ultra Marathon
Cycling Association.
