Everyone is invited to ride any part of the Bishop's Bike Ride. You can ride one day, all five days, or anything in between. Each day's journey takes us to another parish, where riders are welcomed with dinner, overnight lodging, and breakfast.
Riders are encouraged, but not required, to raise funds by asking for pledges and support from those they know would like to help. The funds are used for youth mission trips for youth in the Diocese of Ohio.
Ask around. Chances are someone in your church is planning to ride or helping in some other way this year. Even if you are not able to ride, drive, or donate, consider offering your prayers and encouragement to help the participants achieve their goals and complete a safe and successful ride.
