On Sunday April 19th, hundreds of Bikers arrived at Bayonne’s 9/11 Monument at the Penisula, located at Bayonne Harbor at the formerÂ Military Ocean Terminal.Â
The event was the 4th Annual Blessing of the Bikes. Ecumenical Service, Interdenominational.
The BLESSING OF THE BIKES provides an opportunity for all motorcycle riders to have their bikes blessed for a safe riding season, while at the same time providing an opportunity for camaraderie and friendship and promoting a positive image of motorcyling to the community at large. The event also helps raise donations for the local Bayonne Elks. The Bayonne ELks Lodge 434 MC hosted the event.
Â The event ran from 1 olock til 5 oclock . A priest from the area was there blessing the bikes of the many participants. Food & Beverage, a bike show, vendors, and Live Music by Mudbelly BlueÂ Band all came with theÂ $20.00 participation fee.
As one participant told our reporter ” This goes on all over the country but our event here in Bayonne gets larger every year, we welcome more bikers from the metropolitain areaÂ next year.”
