The annual 'Bisikleta Iglesia' will kick off on March 24, spanning a 52-kilometer religious and heritage tour
BATANGAS CITY, Philippines – 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.
The two-wheel pilgrimage – "Bisikleta Iglesia" – will kick off at 5:30 am on Saturday, March 24. The 52-kilometer religious and heritage tour will be led by running priest Father Robert Reyes, OFM.
It will be the second time for Reyes to join the Bisikleta Iglesia, an event staged by Lima Park Hotel.
Over 150 cyclists from Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, and Metro Manila attended the event last year. It was also a gathering of cyclists from different age brackets with 11-year-old EJ Yabut as the youngest participant.
