Temecula Bike Blessing a hit

Temecula, California (April 13, 2019) — A week before Easter, motorcyclists flocked Saturday, April 13, to Temecula Harley-Davidson — and then to a priest waiting to bless their vehicles. It was the second annual Temecula Bike Blessing, created to smash stereotypes about bikers.

The blessing aimed to show, the event’s website states, “that bikers are normal people — sons, fathers, husbands, etc. — who have a common goal and respect for one another and the cities that they live in.” 

Motorcyclists rode from the dealership to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4089, where a priest blessed the motorcycles as they came into the driveway. The event, a VFW fundraiser, also included food and activities for children.
