Blessing of the Bikes in Detroit

[geo_mashup_map height=”200″ width=”300″ zoom=”14″]

For the first time, the Spirit of Hope is having a Blessing of the Bikes event in Detroit’s North Corktown neighborhood.

The event will be held this Sunday, May 31st during 11 a.m. worship. The church is at the corner of Trumbull, Grand River, and Martin Luther King.

If the weather cooperates, this will be held outside, otherwise we’ll be bringing the bikes inside the church.

This is open to bicycles and motorcyclists.

In fact it was the latter that inspired this event. According to the Reverend Matthew Bode, a member of the church suggested this event last year. Unfortunately it didn’t happen and that member was involved in a motorcycling accident that summer.

Reverend Bode is not sure how many cyclists to expect but is hoping for a big crowd.

As we noted earlier, we think this sort of event puts a much more positive spin on cycling.
