Maybe 100 bikes rumbled up to the Screamin’ Demons’ clubhouse on Academy Avenue in Sanger. The riders wore layers to ward off an early morning chill Feb. 24. Their jackets proudly bore their club affiliations on their backs. Some brought cans of food for HOPE Sanger and others simply words of faith to attend what has become an annual ride with a message of peace and goodwill.
“It’s going to be a great year,” said Rhonda Miller, Screamin’ Demons’ secretary. “We’re blessed.” Most bikers parked outside the perimeter fencing and gathered near the club. Pastor Sam Estes led the group in an initial prayer and described the ride’s route, which was to end with pancakes, ham and coffee at Sanger High.
“Ninth year, 10th year,” Estes had said just minutes earlier, referring to the stretch of time he’s been involved with the Screamin’ Demons and the Blessing of the Bikes. “I forget. It’s way too much fun every year.”
