Rev. Robert "Ashley" Beagle started the Dead Men Walking Motorcycle Ministry two years ago and it has grown ever since. The Dead Men Walking name came from his great love of Bruce Springsteen's song that accompanied the Movie "Dead Man Walking", along with one of his favorite Bible vereses Galatians 2:20 " I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live." Rev. Beagle who had headed up the White Horse Biker Church in 1994-1996 in Cincinnati, Ohio decided after having laid down his dream for more than 10 years that he still had this burning desire for a Motorcycle Ministry. So, through a dream one night the name & vision came about.
The group usually has between 10-20 riders who meet the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM at Decoursey Baptist Church, 8276 Decoursey Pike, Covington, KY 41015 and leave around 10:15 AM. The rides usually last anywhere from 65-100 miles and there is always a stop for food and fellowship.
Some of the places the group and individuals from the group have went has been Ripley, Ohio for the Tobacco Festival, many area local festivals, many long country road rides, Rabbit Hash, KY and many more.All Bikers/Motorcyclist are free to come and join us for our rides and we always have a great time together. The majority of the riders are well seasoned riders but, it is also open to new riders as well. Our Road Captians Jack "Boxcar" Morgan and Phil "Skull" Thornberg do a awesome job planning our routes and they always know the best Biker friendly joints to eat and hangout at !!!! No one has ever gone riding with us and complained that they didn't have a blast !
