These pedal-powered mission trips will raise money for community ministry grants to churches throughout the diocese. A great choice for outreach committees and youth groups, the Columbus Urban Treasures ride stops for lore and refreshments at ten urban ministries, concluding with supper, social and raffle at St. Alban's. The Cincinnati Eastside Eden ride is your choice of distance along the Little Miami bike trail, with way stations where you can collect lore and snacks, before ending at St. Thomas for a cookout with live music by Robinson Circus. Veteran bikers: consider the two-day Tour d'Ohio from Procter to Cincinnati and back. Led by the Rev.
