Quadriplegic cyclist’s cross-Canada journey travelling through North Shore corridor 

By Rosalind Russell – A Newmarket, Ontario man is making his way across Canada on a modified bicycle to raise awareness about accessibility and inclusion. 

Kevin Mills, a quadriplegic, is hand-cycling with his friend and trainer, Nikki Davenport. 

When he was 28, Mills had a swimming accident while in Cuba for his sister’s wedding in 2009.  

After being transported back to Canada on a med-evac plane, and surgery at Sunnybrook Hospital, he was told he was a C6 quadriplegic, but that has not stopped him. 

He has competed in several adapted events and decided to bring attention to activity-based therapy by making the cross-country trek on a specially adapted bicycle. 

He is now in the North Shore corridor area cycling for inclusion of all people through his non-profit Pedaling Possibilities. 

Mills adds he is also mapping an accessible route across Canada as he travels, so anyone can see the diversity of the country no matter what their mode of travel.
