It’s crunch time for the cyclists with Nanaimo Rides Again, a team of  26 riders from Namaimo, Parksville, Gabriola Island and Qualicum Beach as they work feverishly to raise funds for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. The riders leave Vancouver Island on Friday and the ride from Vancouver to Seattle leaves Saturday morning.

To date, they have raised over $70,000 for the B.C. Cancer Foundation through their efforts. Anyone who would like to donate can do so directly through the website at nanaimoridesagain.com.
