Three riders cycle from Avola to Dutch Lake in Clearwater as part of the annual Hospice Cup Challenge. There they rendezvoused with other cyclists who had pedalled from Barriere and Wells Gray Park. Pictured are (l-r) Matt Nicol of Blue River, and Crystal Wadlegger and Jean Nelson of Clearwater. Although the final figures were not in, organizers say the new format to the bike challenge raised considerably more than last year to help construct a hospice house for the North Thompson Valley.
