Saturday, April 20th: Blessing of the Bikes 2013

Blessing of the Bikes 2013
The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine (1047 Amsterdam Ave., Manhattan)
9am sharp
Free

Wear your usual cycle clothing and bring your bike (or skates or non-motorized scooter) INSIDE the spectacular Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine for the 15th Annual Blessing of the Bikes.

Our friend Reverend Tom*, will say a few kind words and then sprinkle our bikes with Holy Water. There is a moment of silence to remember those cyclists we’ve lost in the past year, a chance for everyone to ring their bicycle bells in celebration of cycling, and we’re gone.

Please note that this event is wonderful but BRIEF — if you are even a little late, you’ll miss it! Please be on time! NOTE EARLIER START TIME — there is another event at the Cathedral this day so we are starting a bit earlier than usual.
