Colleen Driscoll and Dr. Jim Noiles were outside the Liquor Store at the Canada Safeway parking lot Friday to get a head start on the upcoming West Kootenay Glacier Challenge ride.

The annual event has cyclists raising money help fight MS (Multiple sclerosis).

Riders and donors have been preparing for the August 22-23 in Nelson and area.

“Everyone who joins us, whether as a rider, a donor or a volunteer is helping to reach our goal — to end MS,” said Leona Dimock, West Kootenay Glacier Challenge Bike Tour Coordinator.

The race has a new route after paving in the Slocan Valley was going to prove somewhat dangerous to riders.

Driscoll and Noiles were riding on stationary bikes to raise money for the annual event.
