Sept 8, Ambriss Clermont Ride for Hospice

Post by mfarnham » Tue Aug 27, 2019 12:08 pm

The 8th Annual Ambriss Clermont Memorial Ride to raise money for Victoria Hospice will be held Sunday September 8 at 7:15am, departing from Russ Hay's bike shop, 650 Hillside Ave in Victoria. The ride honours the memory of Ambriss Clermont, Mike Clermont's wife and former co-owner of Russ Hay's. Mike has long been a friend of Tripleshot and has provided substantial moral and financial support to our Youth program and to cycling around Victoria generally.

Victoria Hospice (which provides home medical treatment) is an alternative to hospital treatment for people with a terminal illness as they negotiate the last few weeks of life. Many of us will likely end up wanting the option of something like Hospice for ourselves or loved ones at some point. So even if you don't benefit from Hospice today, it's probably a cause worth supporting for when you do need it.

Tripleshot riders have participated the ride for several years. A couple years ago, John Dower suggested that the ride would benefit from some Tripleshotters serving as Ride Leaders. Mike welcomed the support last year, and has asked us to supply 6 volunteers for this year's ride. This fits nicely into our goal of giving back to the community, especially in ways that tie into cycling.

Many people will be racing cross in Cumberland on Sept 8, which means we need non-cross-racers to step up and help out with the Ambriss Clermont ride. If you're not racing cross on Sept 8, consider turning up and lending a hand to this ride.

More information about the ride can be found here: https://victoriahospice.org/event/8th-a ... rial-ride/

There are three distances (25km, 64km, and 100km). I will be participating. Post here if you'd like to join me.

Cheers!
Martin

Definitely riding the 100k.

Since we arrived in Victoria in early 2018, my wife Amanda has been volunteering at the Victoria Hospice.

For deeply personal reasons this cause and fund raiser is very close to our hearts.

Would be great to have sizeable Trippleshot turn out for this great event.
