Blessing of the Bikes

Posted: Updated:

 

Several people took their bicycles to church to get them blessed.
 
 People gathered inside New York City's Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine for the 15th Annual Blessing of the Bikes.

Some kind words were said and cycles were sprinkled with Holy Water. There was also a moment of silence to remember those cyclists that were lost in the past year. It was a chance for everyone to ring their bicycle bells in celebration of cycling.
