Bikers to tour Long Leaf Trace


The second annual Circuit Rider bike tour sponsored by the Mississippi Conference has been scheduled for May. 

The event is set for May 12 on Long Leaf Trace, a converted railroad bed between Prentiss and Hattiesburg. Participants are invited to ride whatever distance they desire. 

The goal for 2007 is to have 75-100 participants. Among those expected to participate is Bishop Hope Morgan Ward, who was part of the first ride in 2006. Training rides will be offered soon. 

Tom Martin of the Bike Rack in Jackson and Wells United Methodist Church are consulting with the ride committee on the details. Committee members include Jim Biedenharn,  Joyce White, Karen Jones, Scott Cox, Karen Koons, Don Patterson and Curtis James.
