Team Ideal Candidate got up a little earlier than usual yesterday to take part in the 2014 Becel Heart & Stroke Ride for Heart in Toronto.

The sold-out ride was a huge success, raising over $6M for heart and stroke research and holding strong as Canada’s largest charity cycling event. We were happy to be a few of the approximately 14,000 riders cruising down the highway as the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway were cleared for the morning.

We were pretty proud to have clocked a combined 250km before brunch and after we take a couple days to recover, we’ll be setting next year’s goal—500km? See you there?

Check out some of our best shots from yesterday:
