A local father-daughter team is departing on a cycling trip from Bancroft today. Their destination: the Maritimes, all in support of non-motorized trails in North Hastings.
But this isn’t the first long distance cycling trip that Greg Cooper, a doctor with the Bancroft Family Health Team, has taken with his kids.
He says it’s about promoting healthy living while raising awareness for the development of non-motorized trails around North Hastings. Cooper’s trip with his youngest daughter Dana is expected to take just over one month from start to finish. You can donate money to the cause and follow the team’s progress through their blog at: ect2015.wordpress.com.
