Kreuzweg, a German word for "Way of the Cross" is a cycling pilgrimage in the Land of the Cross Tipped Churches in West Central Ohio.  
The logo with colorful cross arrows represents geographically and culturally the 5 "ways", varying from 20 up to 60 miles.  The "ways" radiate from the village of Maria Stein, located at the heart of the Cross Tipped Church region.  
 

If you can't join us in September, the links to maps on this website can guide anyone to their own self guided pilgrimage any time of the year.   So here we go...

Here's what one cycling pilgrim had to say about Kreuzweg

"The Kreuzweg bike tour was a one-of-a-kind family activity. The Churches were beautiful and it was an amazing way to spend a day touring, praying and having fun with our family. Even our eight-year-old daughter, who had just learned to ride a bike, was able to complete the 20-mile ride. We'll definitely be back next year!"
