Bike Shenandoah to honor Steve Leaman ’75

September 14, 2020 / Andrea Wenger

The 23rd annual Bike Shenandoah event will honor Steve Leaman, class of ’75. Steve loved biking and outdoor activities, and helped organize the ride in recent years as part of his work with Virginia Mennonite Missions. Steve was a beloved older brother of Paul Leaman, EMS head of school.

Bike Shenandoah is an annual family-friendly fundraising event which includes rides of 5, 15, 30, or 62 miles in the Shenandoah Valley. This year, non-bikers can also participate by walking or playing golf, one of Steve’s other favorite sports.

Fall ride day schedule:

7:30 am – Metric Century (62-mile)
9:00 am – 30 mile
10:00 am – 15 mile
10:15 am – Bike rodeo
11:00 am – 5 mile family ride

The four fall rides begin from Eastern Mennonite School upper parking lot. Riders are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the starting time.
