Blessing of the Bikes

It’s spring time and people of all ages have rolled out their trusty bikes for the 3rd annual Blessing of the Bikes at the Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church on Bloor Street West near Spadina. A few dozen people lined up down the aisle of the church to have their bikes blessed to ensure a safe and healthy season of riding through the streets of Toronto. A man even brought his canary yellow Vespa into the proceedings, eliciting applause and laughter from the ministers and other participants.
