Bucks County’s historic covered bridges may rattle a little in a June 26 event. but given what they’ve endured thus far, a little shake should not matter much. Besides, the source of the tremors is a good one: the 2022 Livengrin Ride, as reported in the Lower Bucks Times.

The 200-cyclist road trip is a fundraiser organized by the Livengrin Foundation. Since 1966, it has worked to heal individuals who have become over-reliant on alcohol or pharmaceuticals.

This year’s event will provide funds for residents who are unable to afford care. That segment of the county has seen an increase in numbers recently, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and unemployment trends.

“This event is especially important to our patients and their families who struggle to access treatment due to loss of employment and healthcare benefits during COVID-19,” said Livengrin CEO David Blenk.

Following the ride is a barbecue at the organization’s Bensalem community building. The public is welcome; the cost is $15.
