Storm Forces Bicyclists to Pay Surprise Visit

LINDSBORG, KS – Bicyclists raising money on a cross-country ride for a global health organization made an unexpected Bikersstop at the Lindsborg Covenant Church in Lindsborg, Kansas, when a thunderstorm forced the rain-drenched team to seek shelter. One of the riders blogged, “. . . talk to me earlier today and  i would have cursed kansas again; however, after finishing the ride, i must say that kansas is improving.”

That change in heart developed, in part, due to the kindness of the church members. “(We) were treated very well by people we didn’t know at the Covenant church,” he wrote. “The people at lindsborg covenant church let us warm up, dry up and fed us hot cocoa and coffee.”

The experience was one of the events that led the rider to comment, “i want to say that today was one of those days you remember because it was looking so horrible to start and turned into a beautiful ride.”
