Bike Blessing and send-off
times and locations TBA
This is the day that the 2016 PA IPL cyclists will leave State College on their ride to Washington, DC to meet with our PA legislators as part of the national IPL lobby day. We’re the only state with a contingent that arrives by bike, and our legislators notice! (date bonus this year: the departure day is Arbor Day!)
If you are in another part of the state JOIN US by planning a get-out-the-bike event at your congregation or community during this weekend: (and be sure to share it with us, so we can share it here — share before for posting, or after with photos and stories, or BOTH!)
- a blessing of the bicycles
- a community ride and potluck
- a how-to workshop on spring cleaning and basic bike maintenance and repair
- install or dedicate a bike rack (You have a bike rack already? Does it need a coat of paint, a shelter, or more slots? How about other climate-stewardship options: a bus bench or shelter, or marked priority parking spots for every-seat-taken carpool folks?)
- May is National Bike Month Bike to Work day is May 20. Schedule Bike to Worship day!
If you are in STATE COLLEGE or nearby, join us (with or without your bicycle) for a blessing and sendoff (venue TBD) at 4:00 PM. Blessing participants with bicycles are welcome to join in as much of the first-leg ride to McAlevy’s Fort as they’d like.
