The Lent is a season for contemplation and acts of devotion. There are various expressions of faith and in Batangas, a spiritual journey can start with a two-wheel pilgrimage.
This is the annual “Bisikleta Iglesia,” which will kick off on 24 March 2018, Saturday, 5:30 AM. The 52-kilometer religious and heritage tour will be led by running priest Fr. Robert Reyes, OFM.
This is the second time that Fr. Reyes is joining the Bisikleta Iglesia, an event staged by Lima Park Hotel. Participants will have stopovers at seven churches namely Sto. Niño Parish Church; Marian Orchard; Divino Amor Chapel-Redemptorist; Parish of Mary Mediatrix of All Grace; Our Lady of Mt.Carmel Monastery; Metropolitan Cathedral of San Sebastian; and Parish Church of St. Therese of the Child Jesus.
Last year, the event was attended by over 150 cyclists from Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, and Manila. It was also a gathering of cyclists from different age brackets. In 2017, the youngest participant was EJ Yabut, 11 years old, while the oldest was Efren Evangelista, 67 years old.
Event’s registration fee is only Php 398, inclusive of breakfast, packed snack, and buffet lunch. The first 100 registrants will receive commemorative Bisikleta Iglesia jerseys. There will also be a chance to win Lima Park Hotel gift certificates and other goodies.
