ZANESVILLE, Ohio â€“ This weekend Rushing Wind Biker Church is hosting their 14th annual â€˜Bikerfest.â€™ The two-day event brings together bikers and believers for their annual celebration.
Saturday, members gathered at the Salvation Army for lunch and then a ride through the Ohio Flags of Honor Memorial at Zaneâ€™s Landing Park. Church pastor Michael McGuire said that todayâ€™s event drew 300 bikers from all across the country.
â€œWe have bikers here from the surrounding counties and the city of Zanesville,â€ said McGuire. â€œWe have one gentleman that came from San Diego, California, so this is a big event. Itâ€™s a great draw for bikers to come in and just enjoy the weekend.â€
The â€˜Bikerfestâ€™ event will continue through Sunday with an event at the church at 5715 East Pike in Zanesville. McGuire said that Rushing Wind provides an alternative to more traditional churches.
â€œRushing wind is a unique church in that it draw a lot of leather. A lot of ink,â€ said McGuire. “And maybe draws some folks that may not feel comfortable in a conservative church, but as they come to rushing wind, weâ€™re going to preach the word of God.â€
