A righteous reason to ride

Peggy Zaring, Dusty, rides with Yogi, her nine-month-old pooch, who began riding at eight weeks old. They ride a BMW K1200 GT. Yogi's smile says it all, as they make their pre-ride preparations.

Ideal weather on Sunday, June 2, set the stage for a large turnout of bikes and trikes for the ninth annual Colfax Ride For A Cure. The event is a fundraiser for cancer research. Although the final tally is not yet available, approximately $4,000 was raised this year, with $1,111 of that coming from raffle ticket sales for a quilt with a design that honored the caregivers of cancer patients. About 130 riders traveled the 125 mile route on approximately 80 machines through springtime vistas in Colfax, Palouse, Garfield, Tekoa, Spangle, St. John and Malden, eventually arriving at Fredneck's Tavern in Rockford to end the trip with dinner and a drawing for the many raffle prizes.

A row of Harley Davidsons gleam in the Sunday morning sun.
