Adrian Marziliano had a big smile on his face when he biked towards Princess Margaret Cancer Centre on the morning of July 31, where a proud and loud crowd of friends, family, media and well-wishers gathered to welcome him home.

After pedalling more than 14,000 kilometres on an inter-continental bike ride to raise money for palliative care at the Princess Margaret, the full extent of his journey – known as the Ride Home for Rosemary – was hard for him to put into words.

"It's kind of overwhelming to be back in my city and know that I did this all on a bike," he said outside the cancer centre.

"I'm really, really grateful this many people came out and supported me. I'm really grateful that everyone came and supported me all along the way and I can't be more thankful."

Adrian's epic cycling adventure has raised more than $31,000 in support of palliative care at the cancer centre.

His journey began in Santiago, Chile. Adrian had been living with his cousin there when he got the idea to undertake this ride in honour of his late mother, Rosemary.
