Blessing of the Bikes – May 20, 2018

Update 20180519


I’m so sorry to report that I have to cancel tomorrow’s pre-ride to the Blessing of the Bikes. I’m dealing with a family emergency which is going to extend through tomorrow, and I don’t have an alternate to lead the ride. As of now, the Blessing is still on, weather permitting. You can watch the Blessing Facebook page for any weather related cancellation there. I apologize for the inconvenience.




Please join us for a pre-ride enjoying some country roads as we make our way to the Blessing of the Bikes at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia May 20, 2018. This annual event combines great food, vendors, live music and what amounts to a Holy Water fight as clergy members bless and sprinkle Holy Water on the thousands of bikes in attendance. It’s a good time, even if you’re not of the faith!

Meet us for an optional breakfast at Cracker Barrel in Middletown at 0800. If you’re not hungry, just be sure to be there by 0845 for the ride briefing prior to the 0900 kickstands up.

The ride ends at the Blessing. You’re free to enjoy the event and leave at your leisure. Admission is $3 per person or $5 per couple.
