Brian Smith Charity Ride!

Hi all,

My good friend, Nancy Hastings, with the Iron Canucks asked me to post this charity ride to invite all the LOSTies, which I am happy to do!

If you are looking for a charity ride this is one of the best ones to do.  I remember very well when the local police officer, Brian Smith, was out riding, I guess it was already 11 years ago now, and was killed.  This happened right on the roads where we all ride when training for triathlons, so you couldn’t find anything more local… or more relevant!

Have fun, enjoy the ride and support a GREAT cause!  Thanks Nancy!

About LOST Swimmer

I founded LOST Swimming because I like open water swimming and would like to see it grow and thrive in Lake Ontario. I started as a competitive swimmer as a kid and ended up getting as far as a silver medal at Nationals and going to the Olympic Trials in 1988. But I retired after that, I was sick of swimming. So I got into running marathons and have run over 35 to date, as well as a few ultra marathons, including the Marathon des Sables (7 day, ultra across the Sahara Desert). I also kind of fell into triathlons and have done a handful of Ironman tri's too. This gradually got me back in the water and in 2006 I took the plunge and attempted swimming the English Channel. I didn't quite make it across, but the circle was now complete and after 17 years I was a swimmer again! Although I still do plenty of pool swimming, I now much prefer open water swimming and like to say that open water swimming is to pool swimming, what trail running is to treadmill running! As a result I hope to encourage more people to join me for a dip in Lake Ontario as often as we can!
