Two Langley rides on the horizon for charities

Bikers can gear up and explore some of the most scenic roads throughout Langley and the Fraser Valley to help out two charities in need.

Barnes Harley Davidson is inviting motorcyclists of all levels to participate in two upcoming summer charity rides — the Summer Sizzle Charity Poker Run on June 16 and the Ride into History on July 28.

The Summer Sizzle ride, benefitting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Canada, will take riders on a three-hour route through Fort Langley that will twist and turn out to Mission and back through the Fraser Valley. There will be poker stops along the way and five observation questions that will challenge the riders as they cruise through the route, said Greg Huot, route co-ordinator for the Summer Sizzle.

Advance registration is available on Friday, June 15 at Barnes Harley Davidson, 8859 201 St., along with a barbeque and cruise-in night from 5-8 p.m. Registration is also available the day of the ride from 8-9:30 a.m.

The Ride into History, in partnership with the City and Township of Langley and the Kwantlen First Nations, is an inaugural event to raise money for the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope.

The event is a celebration of motorcycling and the History of B.C, taking riders on a three-hour scenic ride that will start and finish at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. There will also be many festival activities for the public, including concerts by donation, pancake breakfasts, a motorcycle show-n-shine and a salmon barbeque. Events begin on Friday, July 27, with the ride on Saturday.

Pre-register at Barnes Harley Davidson or on the morning of the event at the Fort Langley National Historic Site from 8-9:30 a.m. For more information, call Barnes Harley Davidson at 604-534-6044.
