Pray for Josh

You may know that I've been helping out with the Freewheelin' Bike Co-op, a Broadway UMC project housed at Tabernacle Presbyterian Church. The program teaches neighborhood youth how to maintain and repair bicycles, and after they've worked in the bike shop a certain number of hours, they earn a bike (along with a free helmet and bike lock). The program also includes rides with the neighborhood kids.

One of the many blessings that have found their way to Freewheelin' is Josh Weir, an Olympic hopeful whom many have called "the next Major Taylor." Josh is out in California this week, riding to compete to enter the Olympics talent pool, which I understand is the next step toward becoming America's Next Top Olympic Cyclist. If he does well this week, he gets to go to the Olympic trials...and then if he does well, he gets to go to Beijing.

So keep Josh and his bike in your prayers this week!
