I couldn’t tell who was more excited for the The Northern BC Telus Ride for Dad, Doug Jones or the awesome people running it! Doug Jones was their celebrity rider, and boy he looked pretty happy in the “motorcycle” that really looked way more like the BatMobile. The volunteers were bright and early, and sparkly as ever as they were happy to offer help, or advice. Often explaining things to not only me but riders and volunteers alike. They have been doing this ride as a campaign to raise awareness for Men’s health, in 2011. It has been success, and a real motivator for men to go get checked, by helping to eliminate the stigma around doctors visits. The riders, headed out with the lots flashing lights and hullabaloo. They returned after their parade around Prince George, to a Mr.Mikes lunch of burgers! Which smelled fantastic, and everyone gobbled them down. Then it was back to the pavement for the poker ride, followed by speeches and awards! If you want to participate in next years ride, or would like more information go here.
