Carl Edwards, right, rides with his friend Sam Russell, left, for the third annual Ride with Carl for Sam on Wednesday. The ride, which began at Walt's Bicycle Fitness and Wilderness Co., followed the 8.9 mile MTK Nature and Fitness Trail, which runs from near downtown Columbia to McBaine. Approximately 60 bicycle enthusiasts participated in the event that Edwards started to help raise money for his friend Russell, who was paralyzed from the waist down after he was involved in a mountain biking accident.
