Yesterday's second annual Mike Ride, organized by Bike for Mike to raise money for their goal of providing every child in Hamilton with a bicycle, was a great success. The weather was perfect for cycling - sunny but not too hot with light winds and great visibility.

According to organizers, the fundraiser attracted nearly 300 participants and raised around $40,000. The money is being directed to the Michael Chamberlain Fund at Hamilton Community Foundation.
Started by the family of Mike Chamberlain, an avid cyclist who died on May 29, 2010, Bike for Mike seeks to realize Mike's dream of making Hamilton a more bicycle-friendly city.
Bike for Mike works with the public and separate school boards to provide children in a given neighbourhood - and their parents - with bicycles.
