Ryo Ambe completes his Cross Canada Journey in Victoria, BC.

It was a beautiful sunny day on Tuesday, September 20th , 2011 and after almost 9,000 kilometres, 30 year old Ryo Ambe talked to the press and members from the Japanese community in Victoria at City Hall and then jumped on his bike to pedal the final leg to Mile Zero and dip his bike in the Pacific Ocean.

Ryo began his trip on May 29th in Halifax, NS almost four months earlier, cycling across Canada to thank Canadians for their generosity in providing aid to the victims in his home country of Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.
