2019 Bike Day 1: Blessings and Sendoffs

The Western-start crew after Rev. Bonnie’s blessing at University Baptist and Brethren Church, State College

Both groups launched their rides today — one from the John Heinz Memorial Wildlife Refuge near the Philadelphia Airport, and the other from the University Baptist and Brethren Church in State College, with both groups giving voice to your prayers and blessings as part of their sendoff ceremonies.

Watch for two posts for each day for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday then the groups meet each other on Monday evening, and will blog as one about Tuesday and Wednesday. If you live in PA and you haven’t called to let your Representative know that you’re a constituent who is following the cyclists, please do!
