Clara’s Big Ride set to hit the road

Six-time Olympic medallist Clara Hughes is going for a ride.

Starting at Noon on March 14 from Toronto’s Maple Leaf Square, Hughes will embark on Clara’s Big Ride for Bell Let’s Talk, a multi-year charitable program dedicated to mental health.

The goal of the cross-country bike ride – from Clara’s Big Ride website – is to “help grow awareness, acceptance, and action to create a stigma-free Canada.”

The tour will reach every province and territory before the finish line in Ottawa on Canada Day, July 1, 2014.
