It started with a wild man, and a wilder idea, heaven meets hell-for-leather. Bill Chase, known as “Wild Bill” in Preston, had this idea, and pitched it to his coffee buddy, Pastor Roy Peacock, more than 10 years ago when he was a newcomer to the Raging River Community Church. What if somebody, Pastor Roy, for instance, hosted a prayer service, specifically for motorcyclists at the start of the riding season, Wild Bill asked Peacock. Not a rally, not a church service, and not that wild of an idea, after all.
