One of the great springtime traditions at Mooseheart takes place Saturday, May 20, when the campus hosts its 14th annual Blessing of the Bikes, an event open to all riders.

The bike blessing is delivered by a Mooseheart student and conveys a wish for a safe riding season for all present. Though all riders are welcome, the majority of those who participate in Mooseheart's bike blessing are "Moose Riders," motorcycle enthusiasts who are Moose members. Moose Riders spend their riding season participating in "motorized kindness" -- fundraising events to raise money for Mooseheart and the community service efforts supported by the fraternity.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

On-site registration begins at 8 a.m. with a parade-style campus tour taking place at 11:30 a.m. That tour ends at Mooseheart's House of God at noon for the blessing.

Advanced registration is available through www.mooseriders.org for $20 per bike. On-site registration May 20 is $25 per bike.

Mooseheart is located on Route 31 between North Aurora and Batavia, 1.5 miles north of I-88.
