They came, they saw, they slept!
More than 300 bicyclists from across the country converged on Velva last Sunday morning. The city was their first overnight stop on the annual CANDISC tour (Cycling Around North Dakota in Sakakawea Country) after leaving Garrison early that morning.
The tour last stayed in Velva in 2007, and the city also hosted the ride in 1999. This year’s installment covers a 400 mile loop that takes the riders through Willow City, Lake Metigoshe, Towner, Butte and Turtle Lake.
