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