Ride n Share

Happening off-site in the Berks area

Biking is great for your physical health. Sharing life with fellow Jesus followers is great for your spiritual health. Each week we ride with the intent to share life with each other. Our paces may be different just as life stages are different, but if we are willing to slow down, or maybe speed up for a bit we may find great connections.
