Some might say one is blessed just riding a bike. Nothing but the wind and sky and open road to call home. But, hey, everyone can use a bit of extra blessing when out there on two wheels.
This Saturday, May 28, beginning at 10 a.m. the second annual blessing of the bikes takes place at the Edgartown Federated Church at 45 South Summer street.
The Rev. Dr. Jerry Fritz, an avid cyclist when not in the pulpit preaching the word, will preside.
Everyone is invited, from the smallest tyke tottering on a three-wheeled trike to the racing enthusiast chasing dreams of Greg LeMonde dueling against Laurent Fignon down the Champs-Élysées.
If there is a down moment in line, be sure to ask Pastor Fritz about his son playing the lead role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch currently touring Prague.
