‘Gits’ cycle across Canada

Two Englishmen are crossing the country by bike so they can literally cross the trip off their bucket list.

Andy Sieroslawski (left) and Chris Furling enjoyed breakfast at the Mile 0 Diner in Midway on their way across the country.

“Part holiday, part adventure, part just to see if we can do it and part let’s see if we can raise a little bit of money for these worthy causes,” are the reasons given by Andy Sieroslawski (left) and fellow Englishman Chris Furlong for the cross Canada bike ride that they are taking this summer.

Andy has chosen Multiple Scleroses as his charity and Chris, on an unpaid four-month leave as an autism support worker is giving his proceeds to the Wirral Autistic Society.

They said they have yet to be disappointed by everyone they have met on their ride across the country. Their advice for Canadians is: don’t take the country for granted and don’t change the way you are.
