Charity ride an excuse to ride Langley’s roads

A walking and cycling event in Fort Langley this weekend is designed to raise about $70,000 for at least 25 various charities based in Langley and Surrey.

Ride for Refuge is being held Saturday, Oct. 1 to help with a number of efforts, including people who are displaced, vulnerable, and exploited, said organizer Matthew Campbell, of the Cloverdale Community Kitchen.

This annual charity event is one of 27 across the country. Locally, it is being moved from Cloverdale to Fort Langley this year, and features a family-friendly five-kilometre walk, as well as 10-, 25-, and 50-km rides around Fort Langley.

Registration begins  at 8:45 a.m. at the Langley Evangelical Free Church, 8870 Glover Rd., with the rides starting at 9 and the walk following at 9:30. Info: matthew.campbell@pacificcommunity.ca.

It’s free for kids, but those 10 years or older must provide a $50 minimum fundraised (or self donated). Lunch is provided for participants.

And being in the saddle – bike saddle, that is, is not exclusive to this Fort Langley event.

That is set for Saturday, Oct. 1, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Penzer Park off 200th Street at 198C Street and 47 Avenue.
