Toronto to New York City in Just 48 hours
On Monday, September 19th at 11 a.m., former NY Islander Steve Webb will pedal from the curb of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto and begin a 550-mile bike ride to the NHL Store in New York City. In support of his charity, the W20 Foundation, he hopes to complete the journey in an unprecedented 48 hours.

Webb’s W20 Foundation (www.w20foundation.org) has provided young student ice hockey players with partial academic scholarships to continue the pursuit of their hockey dreams. Now the organization also highlights athletes as influential agents of change and creates opportunities for athletes to give back in their communities. Webb also commits a portion of the ride’s proceeds to fund Alzheimer and Dementia Research in Ontario.

As one of the coaches for the Bantam Major Long Island Royals hockey team, Webb hopes to use the trip as an example to his players about the importance of commitment to teammates and giving back to those in need. Webb has previously cycled the route, but he took 8 days to complete the process in each of the last two years.

“It will certainly be a challenge to complete the ride in just 2 days this year, but many will benefit from it. That should be a huge motivator for us,” Webb said.

Webb will ride along with Graham Fraser, founder of Centurion Cycling (centurioncycling.com) – host of North America’s premier series of distance bicycling events. He will participate in Centurion’s opening ceremonies in Collinwood, Ontario on Saturday, Sept. 17.
