VIRGINIA – The  Cross Bearers Motorcycle Ministry is once again preparing to rev it up as the organization gets ready for the 5th annual Ride for Autism event.

Bike enthusiasts are encouraged to gear up and head out for an adventure with the Cross Bearers Motorcycle Ministry by taking part in the ride and, at the same time, supporting the Autism Society of Central Virginia while enjoying the picturesque scenery of the Commonwealth.

“We are once again looking forward to the opportunity to give back to our community,” said Joseph “Shogun” Parham, ministry Founder. “The rides are successful because of the support from local businesses, the Faith-Based communities, law enforcement, and of course, the biker communities.”

On April 6, the biker community and supporters are invited to come out and join the ministry in its annual charity motorcycle ride. This year, the ride will start at Lebanon United Methodist Church, located at 12450 Courthouse Road, Dinwiddie, Virginia, 23841. 

The first 100 individuals to register will receive a commemorative pin. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the ride begins promptly at 11 a.m. The cost of registration is $20 for riders and $10 for passengers.

“It is such an awesome, fun, enjoyable, and worthwhile event that everyone can support, even if you are not a biker,” said William “Big Bill” Tomlin.  “If you are a biker, come enjoy a great cruise through the quiet countryside, while helping a wonderful charity. If you are not into biking, then just come to support a worthwhile cause, and cheer the bikers on.”

Food and refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the ride, for all of the participants. Non-riders are also invited and encouraged to join in the food and fellowship feast and are asked for a donation of $10. Representatives from the Autism Society of Central Virginia will be present with community information.

“This will be a great day, and a great place for Faith, Food, fun, and Fellowship,” said Larry “PhuWatt” Watson, President, Cross Bearers Motorcycle Ministry. “All proceeds from the ride and the fellowship feast will be donated to the Autism Society of Central Virginia.”
