Congratulations. I take my bike to church all the time (I only go 1-2 times a month, actually), and it's actually pretty easy. I ride up to the church while everyone else is fighting over the few parking spaces that exist, lock up, and I'm comfortably dozing by the time mass starts...

I am a pastor. Back in the mid-70's I was not connected to a church and was free to fill in for other pastors. My wife went for a couple of weeks to visit her parents. I put my gown and dress clothing into a child seat. Then I rode 25 miles to the church where I was to fill in. I changed clothes and did the worship service. Then I changed into my biking clothes and rode home with the good clothes and gown in the child seat. I do not remember taking a water bottle, nor do I remember eating anything before riding home again.

I might take a car to church once or twice a year, and then only because I'm either carrying an awkward load or because I've got to get out to an assignment immediately afterward. I find cycling to church helps to relax my mind and prepare me for the service.

In summer, we have quite a few people who either cycle or walk to church. In winter, I'm the only one who cycles. There are some who walk year-round.
