Cycling for Sobriety

I am raising money to help fund my trip and to aid those in active addiction to get treatment if they cannot afford it.

Hello, my name is Mat Fee and I am a recovering addict and preparing to set a world record for longest BMX bike ride. I'm going to be the first person to bike across Canada on a single speed BMX bike. I will be leaving from Halifax soon as weather permits (May). The finish line will be the Parliament Building in Victoria B.C. 
The reasons why I am doing this are to raise awareness to addiction and tell the story of how the John Volken Academy has saved my life. I should have been dead a few times. After failing at 7 treatment centers, I found my recovery at the John Volken Academy, a long term program that works. It literally saved my life. Now that I've been sober for 3 years I am excited about life.
Stay tuned for hashtags, website, Fb page, Instagram and cell phone app to track my training, ride preparation and the journey along the way. I'll need all the support I can get. I am looking forward to the journey ahead. 143 days and 6,200 kms of Canadian roads await me and my BMX bike.
