Blessing of the Bikes is this Saturday, May 4 – Let’s do this!

“Okay – the countdown is on! Only 7 sleeps before we head out on our first chapter ride. I have taken a lot of chirpin’ from the veterans all year, let’s prove them wrong and show up with even more than last year. Go to the event page and check off if you can go. All of you old members, you do not want to be shown up by all these new ones, lets all get out!”
