Olympic athlete Clara Hughes waves as she and her riders head east on Highway 13 out of Weyburn on Wednesday morning to resume her "Big Ride" in her campaign to raise awareness in every province and territory in Canada about mental health issues. Riding with her, in the back, is Const. Doug Cleasby of the Weyburn Police Service, and in front is Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, an Olympic cyclist from Germany, and Clara's husband Peter Guzman. While in Weyburn, she was the keynote speaker at the "Night to Inspire", hosted by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) as a fundraiser in support of their programs, and then she spoke to students at the Weyburn Junior High before leaving.
