MCC Staffer, Kyle Rudge chats with dedicated Cycle Clear Lake rider, Kaiella Athaide-Lepp about her experience.


Meet Kaiella Athaide-Lepp, an annual Cycle Clear Lake rider whose dedication to helping vulnerable people began when she was young. At 9-years-old, Kaiella set a goal to fundraise a specific amount before she graduated highschool. 

Now, after 5 years of participating in the cyclathon and a summer of biking 100kms for GO! 100, Kaiella has happily reached her fundraising goal.

Join Kaiella as she reflects on her 6-year journey and her GO! 100 biking challenge this summer with Kyle Rudge and Emily-Ann Doerksen.
