Introduction

 

Covenant Riders is an informal group of motorcycle enthusiasts who share a passion for Christ, and are sponsored by the Covenant United Methodist Church in LaGrange, KY.  We meet on a regular basis to discuss upcoming events, future and past rides, and local concerns within our community.

 

Participation with Covenant Riders is open to all types of bikes and religious beliefs, although most of us believe Jesus Christ to be our Savior.  During rides and at our meetings, we start and finish with prayer.

 

We schedule day rides on a monthly basis during the riding season, typically on a Saturday.  These rides are 3 – 6 hours round trip from LaGrange.  We also host an overnight trip to NC each year – Our Third Annual Appalachian Trail Ride is August 12 – 16, 2016 with our base camp in Maggie Valley, NC.

 

We also host the Annual Covenant Ride that is co-sponsored by Covenant UMC and Pendleton UMC.  The primary goal of the Covenant Ride is to increase awareness and exposure to Covenant Riders, CUMC and PUMC.  Our secondary goal, but of great importance, is to raise money for local missions.  This year the Covenant Ride will be on October 22, 2016 with the ride beginning at CUMC and ending at PUMC.

 

Members are encouraged to share information and events, including participation in rallies – Some of our group participate with Americade each June in New York. 

 

If you are interested in participating, or just want to ride with a great group of bikers, come join us!
