My Story…

Why I'm riding and raising money for Parkinson's...

Welcome to my annual fundraising activity, which for the fifth year running I'm thrilled to continue to ride in support of Parkinson's Disease and the great work that the Davis Phinney Foundation and Brain Canada do to search for a cure and help those affected 'live well today'. This is a truly exceptional event; 200k of mostly gravel roads to make your legs burn, multiple pastries, likely terrible weather rounded off with a few cold ones!

Perfect day out.

Please support me if you can, it means a lot.



The Growling Beaver Brevet made its debut in 2015 to celebrate cycling and to help people with Parkinson's to live well today. All fundraising proceeds will go to support the joint work of the Davis Phinney Foundation and the Brain Canada Foundation (and they double your donation this year!).

Donate to help Ian raise money for Growling Beaver 2019’s fundraising campaign.
