After telling my saga and making the donation, word spread quickly around the office. Soon I was talking to Craig, who is the coordinator for some event called Big Bike and he wanted me to me on it, and ride through the Capitol X Parade in downtown Edmonton the following morning
I show up and to my surprise I see 3 "Big Bikes". 30 seat, carts with 4 car tires, and a handlebar and set of pedals for every seat, 3 wide and 10 deep. Each one weighs 1000 pounds. Only 30 people could even get this thing moving, slowly at best. Thankfully were in line with about 150 other floats, so speed was not necessary, as it took us an hour to wind our way through downtown Edmonton and past tens of thousands of people - it was amazing!
