Blessing of the Bikes
LWA Board member Rev. Larry Pickens perfomed a Blessing of the Bikes at Ziegels Church on May 1, 2021. God was asked to hear our prayers covering all aspects of cycling -- for the bikes and their many parts, for the safety and fitness of the humans that ride them, for protection from the winds and sunrays that all encounter, and more.
Lehigh Wheelmen numbered near 60. A few families from the parish attended as well. Afterwards, seven different ride groups took off to a variety of Valley destinations, with routes ranging from 22 miles to a metric century.
The event was well-received and might become an annual event. A great way to kickoff a wonderful riding season!
