Back on the bike

Michael Vita, 9, enjoyed some time off from riding while his arm healed. He’s now back on the bike, riding with his cast, and determined to get back on track to reach his goal of 1,000 kilometres by Sept 1.

Nine-year-old Michael Vita hit a roadblock in his quest to ride 1,000 kilometres on his bicycle by the end of summer to raise money for the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.

Michael began his journey on May 1 and was ahead of schedule, but the journey was put on pause in early June.

“I broke my arm while cycling on June 8 and couldn’t ride for several weeks,” he said, in a news release.
