The Pope Is Blessed By A Bike

Three-time world cycling champion, Peter Sagan (27) gifted a customized racing bicycle, in Papal colors, to Pope Francis (81) on 1/24/2018 according to the The Local Italy.

In other Catholic Pedalphile news, more local to home, the 20th Annual Blessing of the Bikes, has a tentative date of Saturday 5/5/2018 at 9 am at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine (112th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, NY, NY). The event is free.

Here is an old Streetsfilm account of the event, in case you feel the ‘call’.

“All Faiths (or lack thereof) Welcome”

    FYI, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine is the Episcopal Church not the Roman Catholic Church. More liberal and, perhaps, bike friendly. Keep up the good work.
