News from Tom Fortington Victoria Chapter president.
The Big Tree Tour was a TOTAL SUCCESS! Darcy McCord, Adam Hoogeveen and I (Tom Fortington) completed the 260km trip around southern Vancouver Island in Victoria on Sunday night, after a rainy, muddy ride from Sombrio Beach. Our weather for most of the trip was fair and the going was good. We traveled through cities,towns, farmland, clearcuts, and of course we got off the bikes to walk through some ancient and beautiful forests. We had a fantastic time.
So, the even-better news is, we raised over $4000 in cash and pledges from you fine people -- every last dollar going to the Ancient Forest Alliance to continue their great work on behalf of BC's forests. -TF
