After the Ride

Throughout the ride, Bill Werthmann, Hillary’s father, regularly phoned into Edmonton’s campus radio station, CJSR.

To wrap up the series of interviews, Bill went into the CJSR studio this morning to talk about the success of the ride and to play a tune live. “Stuff That Hurts,” originally by Guy Clark, was a tune that resonated with Bill for the entire ride, and you can hear Bill’s live version of the tune midway through this interview:

The trails of bicycle touring

Under the magnitude of the goal to increase awareness of mental health issues and to talk about suicide prevention, the other components of the ride can be pushed out of mind.

The training is one such component, and last week Bill was invited on to Edmonton’s Bicycle Traffic Report on CJSR to talk about the preparation he is physically making to ensure the team can ride across the country.
