Streetfilms: Blessing of the Bikes in New York City

This Streetfilms Shortie showcases the 12th Annual Blessing of the Bikes at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City. The annual event is always a hit with cyclists, though turnout this year was bigger than any can remember. In case you don’t put your faith in a higher figure while riding, you can improve your chances of a safe journey if you remember to ride outside the Door Zone!

  • Maybe here in SF we can engage the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for a similar exercise…

  • Clarence, it was great to rub digi cameras with you at BOTB.
    Great job getting all those interviews!
    I’ll even forgive you for not having your good Friday along to be blessed. :o)
    Here’s my vid (warning: strong Bike Friday content): http://www.galfromdownunder.com/movies/blessingofthebikes
    It didn’t occur to me that you could actually RIDE around the church til I saw one of your earlier flicks, so thank you for that info for next year…

    I would love to get my bike blessed!
