The 11th annual ride started in Cloverdale on a Saturday morning and ended in Hope Sunday afternoon with more than 2,100 cyclists taking part. A total of $9.1 million was raised last year for BC Cancer Foundation, and over its 11 years, more than $105.1 million has been raised for the foundation. (Jenna Hauck/ Black Press file)

Curious about the Ride to Conquer Cancer?

Open house planned at Blue Moose Coffee House in Hope, Feb. 13

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is just getting started in Hope, and it’s time to learn how to get involved.

Last year was the first time the ride ended here, and it’s going to be back again this year, Aug. 29-30. It’s a massive, two-day cycling event that requires riders, supporters and volunteers. It also takes time to train for the grueling, 200-plus km trek from Cloverdale to Hope.

But it’s all worth, say those who do it.

Past participants and organizers will be on hand at an open house on Feb. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Blue Moose in Hope. Anyone with questions about how to get involved with the Ride to Conquer Cancer is welcome to drop in.
