A heavenly ride to Hell’s Gate. In the 11th annual Mennonite Church British Columbia motorcycle ride, six bikers embarked on Sept. 9, 2018, to the Hell’s Gate canyon, east of Hope. The event is organized every year by Garry Janzen, MC B.C.’s executive minister, and this year had been postponed from August, when fires in the province forced the riders to wait for a more suitable day. Once at Hell’s Gate, the group decided to travel down the tram at the canyon for lunch. Pictured from left to right, Jim Niebuhr, Rick Smith, Garry Janzen, John Neufeld, and Peter and Kathe Krahn, all regulars from previous rides, pause at the Agassiz Delicatessen for a coffee before returning to the Vancouver area.
