BICYCLING -- The fifth annual North Idaho College Brian Williams Memorial Bike Ride (for a prize-winning poker hand)  is set for 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, starting at O’Shays Irish Pub and Eatery, 313 Coeur d’Alene Lake Dr.

The poker ride is appropriate for riders of all ages. Live music, barbecue are planned from 4 p.m.-7 p.m.; door prizes and a T-shirt are included in the $25 donation. 

Williams was 28 years old when he was killed in a plane crash in 2010 while flying over Glacier National Park. He participated in NIC Outdoor Pursuits trips and was involved in a variety of outdoor programs offered through the college. Proceeds from the ride and a silent auction will benefit the Brian Williams Memorial Scholarship, which was established to support students studying outdoor leadership at NIC.

Preregister by calling the NIC Outdoors Center, (208) 676-7169.
