Cyclists hit the streets for MEC Langley Century Ride

Close to 200 riders took to the streets of the Fraser Valley for the inaugural MEC Langley Century Ride
One hundred and ninety-two cyclists took part in the inaugural MEC Langley Century Ride. The ride, which offered a 60km and 100km option, began and ended at the Fort Wine Company.

It turned out to be a great day for a bike ride and the inaugural Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) Century Ride.

"The weather cleared up and it was a beautiful day," said Kathie Schellenberg, the event organizer.

One hundred and ninety-two riders took part in the ride, which was held on Saturday (Sept. 21). There were 200 spots available.

Riders had the choice of cycling either 60 or 100 km, with the Fort Wine Co. serving as the race's start and finish line.

"It was a huge success," Schellenberg said.

"The idea is to get people out on the roads of the Fraser Valley."

The feedback she received from some of the riders — many of whom had not cycled out in the Fraser Valley before — was on how stunning the scenery was along the bike route.
