Journal Notes

To recap the last few days, Clara Hughes had a very successful weekend of cycling in the Maritimes with her Big Ride Champions during the Easter Weekend from April 18th to 21st. Spreading the word for reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, Clara and her cycling Bell Let’s Talk team travelled just over 500 kilometers in Eastern Canada.

On April 18th, the Olympic Champion and her team travelled 130 kilometers from Port Hawkesbury to Sydney, Nova Scotia. Here she was welcomes at the Big Fiddle Landmark right off the Atlantic coast. Hundreds of fans were in attendance for her arrival which also marked over 4,000 kilometers cycled as of this day and the 36th of her Big Ride.

After resting in Sydney, Clara Hughes travelled from the Port aux Basques Channel to the town of Stephenville, her first stop in Newfoundland. She hosted a kitchen party named the Easter Olympics and was greeted at the Bruce II Sports Center.

Clara and the cycling team took a well deserved resting day in Stephenville before travelling to the small town of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, on April 21st, Easter Monday. She was welcomed by roaring fans at the Dominion where she spent a few hours after her 2:00 p.m. arrival. She then hosted a special event called Clara Hughes: Cycling to End the Stigma of Mental Health from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Her next stop will be in Springdale, Newfoundland on April 22nd. Here she will not be hosting a special night event but expects a big welcome despite the town’s population of only 2,000. After this welcoming event the Mental Health advocate will take some time to relax on her tour bus and prepare for her third skating event that will be held the following day in Grand-Falls Windsor.
