Motorcycle Mass and Blessing of the Bikes Day is celebrated on the first Sunday in May. This year, it takes place on May 7. Taking your bike to the open road may be a spiritual experience for some, and this bond is never stronger than on Motorcycle Mass & Blessing of the Bikes Day, when motorcyclists assemble for a special mass to have their bikes blessed. The Blessing of the Bikes (also known as The Blessing of the Bicycles) is an annual ceremony in which riders of motorbikes or bicycles are blessed by a priest in the hopes of bringing them safety for the next season. At the start of the summer, many municipalities perform yearly rituals to bless motorbikes. Bikers from all walks of life attend the event, from Wall Street financiers and blue-collar employees to off-duty cops.

Does the blessing of the bikes begin on May 19, or the 7th? I’ve read that it’s the 7th this year. I’m confused. Thanks.
