Agawam church holds annual “Blessing of the Bikers”

Just under 100 bikers turned out for the annual blessing.

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Bikers from every corner of Massachusetts came to the Bethany Assembly of God in Agawam on Saturday.

Just under 100 bikers turned out for the annual blessing, that’s become a tradition at this Agawam house of worship.

Hometown biker, Kenneth O’Connor of Feeding Hills told 22News, he and his companions know all too well the hazards they face on the road, “You know motorcycling can be somewhat   hazardous so we do ask for God’s favor on all our riders, so we want to enjoy safe travels.”

Aside from the spiritual component, the Blessing of the Bikers means renewing acquaintances and accepting an invitation to have lunch at the church.
