This year’s fifth annual Biker Blessing, held at the Knox Presbyterian Church, was well attended.

Host Reverend Gordon Kouwenberg  said this is an annual event where bikers are blessed, wishing them a safe riding season.

He went on to say everyone is welcome at this annual event. This year’s ride included bikers from Nanaimo’s Blue Knights, Victoria’s BC Chapter of the Gold Wing road rider’s association, Christian Motorcycle Association and a number of other individuals and groups. Last year, some members from Hell’s Angels were at the blessing.

The event is sponsored by the elders of the church and the Canadian Bible Society.

After Saturday’s  blessing, about 50 bikers pushed off for a safe group ride.
