Florence Fuhr, the founder of the Women Who Ride Conga annual fundraising event for breast cancer, has passed away.

By Marissa Baecker

In all my adventures of riding, meeting this lady was a highlight. It is with a heavy heart that I learned of her passing but it is with a smile that I see her spirit has touched so many by all the online comments, gatherings, tributes and photos being posted. Florence Fuhr was truly one of a kind.  When someone passes, you don’t know what to do as is true in my case.

What I can do is share her memory as I know there are many people out there that she has crossed paths with who can’t help but smile when her name is mentioned.

If you don’t know who she is, I can share with you the original story I wrote about her after a chance meeting while riding.

Goin’ with the Flo in the Kootenays – a story behind every bike.

There is also book written by Tamela Rich – and photographed by Christina Shook – that includes stories of Flo’s Conga ride fundraising adventures.Tamela

Those able to attend a celebration of life are invited to Eagles Hall, Campbell River, B.C. at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 15, 2016.  I may be safe to say those attending will be dressed in pink as opposed to black. It is what Flo would want.
