JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP -- Motorcycle riders in Lackawanna County got a little extra security Sunday as they prepare to hit the road for the summer season.

Light of Christ Church sponsored a "Blessing of the Bikes" at The Hen's Nest near Mount Cobb.

Dozens of bikers gathered for the ceremony.  Riders said it is important for drivers to be aware of motorcycles on area roadways.

"A problem is people don't see bikes a lot of times.  That's the cause of an accident, you know, people don't realize they're there.  They're small, maybe not noticeable, but its important to know.  Be aware of bikes," said Mark Henneforth.

Christian Motorcycle Association also took part in the bike blessing in Lackawanna County.
