The Northern Illinois Synod invites you to participate in the 1st Annual "Cycle to Synod" event taking place June 12-15th. The bike route is set to start at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rockford and ends at the Synod Assembly at Augustana College in Rock Island, stopping at host churches overnight along the way.
On Tuesday, June 12th Trinity will host the #CycleToSynod departure from our parking lot. Riders will gather at 8:00am to undergo safety training and to load gear into the ride-along cars. Church members are needed to meet in our parking lot between 8:30-9:00am to cheer the riders (and drivers) on their journey after Pastor Jay delivers the blessing. The media has been invited to film the #CycleToSynod departure so an enthusiastic cheer group is requested to properly send them on their way! Rider sponsorships/donations are also welcome, payable to Northern IL Synod with "cycle to synod" in the memo line.
If you are interested in joining the bikers (even just to the city limits) or driving a ride-along car (2-4 volunteers are needed to help haul supplies) please contact Amy Hoening at 815-962-4279 or email@example.com. There is no cost to participate and riders/drivers will receive a free #CycleToSynod t-shirt! Registration and waivers due by June 1st to Amy Hoening @ RALM. Form may be found at: nisynod.org/cycletosynod or contact Amy with questions or for further assistance.
