Blessing of the Bicycles

Blessing of the Bicycles

11am on 19 June 2010

St Mary’s Cathedral, Great Western Road, Glasgow

a wee act of blessing open to people of all faiths or none, celebrating glasgow’s blossoming bicycle community and blessing cyclists as they pilgrim across our city…

What to Expect?
Bicycles and their riders of all shapes and sizes and ages (hybrids, folders, fixies, mountain bikes, recumbants, tourers tandems and childrens bikes are all welcome!) INSIDE, lining the aisles of a gothic revival cathedral. A few words of blessing from The Very Reverend Kelvin Holdsworth. An opportunity to remember cyclists who have died on our roads. To end, a chorus of bicycle bells filling the the building in celebration of the gift of two wheels as we depart.

Don’t forget your bicycle! Wear what you like – whatever you cycle in is fine, although maybe be considerate with your cleated shoes – shimano steel + stone floors maybe don’t go too well together.

The event won’t last all that long – so we suggest arriving promptly!
