High Rollers play when the stakes are high
Cyclists braved the rainy elements during the High Roller Poker run mountain bike ride organized by the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC). Mud splattered riders rode Fernie trails to collect stickers at five stations throughout biking trails around Fernie today.
“It’s a fun ride every year,” said Angela Etheridge, organizer and FMBC president. “Some people will ride this event even if it’s snowing.”
Mud caked riders protected their hard earned stickers in Ziploc bags and made good use of GearHubs bike wash after completing the High Roller poker run bike ride. Two teeter-totters were fun features at the finish line beside the Royal. Riders will get their cards tonight during dinner at the Royal when they trade in their stickers for a poker hand.
