About 125 motorcycle riders toured the Fraser Valley Saturday morning from Langley City out to Agassiz and Chilliwack and back again, all for charity.
The annual Ride Into Hope raised funds for the Gateway of Hope shelter in Langley and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Langley.
“The weekend went wonderfully,” said organizing committee chair Troy Gaglardi
Celine Harmel came out from Coquitlam to take part on her 2004 Vulcan with its custom flame paint job.
“I’ve only been riding for about a year and a half,” she explained.
Ride Into History was her longest ride so far and a fun way to help.
“This was a blast for a good cause,” Vancouver rider Jamie Groeneweg said on the ride’s Facebook page.
After a four-hour ride through the Fraser Valley, participants enjoyed a bike rodeo and meal catered by Milestones Restaurant.
The Saturday ride capped off the fundraiser which started Friday evening with the annual family concert which has grown into a popular event.
The organizing committee is still tallying the amount for Ride Into History.
“We won’t release the funds raised for a while, we’ll finish our clean up and allow some extra dollars to come after the event,” Gaglardi explained.
