WOODSTOCK, Ont. - The bicycle the father of murdered Grade 3 student Tori Stafford used to ride across much of Canada is again helping raise money for Child Find.

Rodney Stafford cycled 3,500 kilometres from Woodstock, Ont., to Edmonton last year after the death of his eight-year-old daughter.

Her body was found in a remote area north of Guelph and two people are awaiting trial on murder and kidnapping charges.

Stafford raised thousands of dollars for Child Find Ontario during his ride and the bike has been auctioned for $2,000.

Child Find assistant director Terry Smith says the buyer will put the bike up for auction again in May to raise more cash.

Smith says the proceeds will be divided among the provinces Stafford cycled through - Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

Stafford says the idea is to provide Child Find with a constant income from the bike.

Stafford plans a second trip bike ride in June with his son, Daryn, from Edmonton to Woodstock to raise more money for the organization.
