Argon 18 and Team H2V United Against Juvenile Diabetes

Argon 18 wishes to spread the news about a new and striking initiative from Team H2V aiming to increase funding in the fight against juvenile diabetes. This undertaking comes in the form of a new book, proceeds from which will be directed to research work on the illness.

Last September, a group of accomplished cyclists formed Team H2V with the aim of riding across Canada, from (you guessed it) Halifax to Vancouver. This odyssey, accomplished on Argon 18 bikes, was enshrined in the Guiness Book of Records and served to raise over a million dollars for the benefit of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International (JDRF).

The newly-published book is entitled The Principles of the Ride: How to Maximize what's Inside You. It was written by two members of H2V, Matt Young and Willie Cromack. Inspired by the cross-country experience, the book deals with matters of motivation and personal accomplishment.

For each copy sold, ten dollars will be forwarded to the JDRF and in this way, the authors hope to raise a further $ 250,000 to benefit the organization. The book can be ordered directly from Vancouver's John Henry Bicycle Shop website at:
