MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sunday was a special event for anyone who rides on wheels in Minneapolis.

The Basilica of Saint Mary hosted their first-ever “Blessing of the Wheels” Sunday. It was open to owners of all types of personal wheeled transportation, including roller blades, wheel chairs, strollers, and bicycles, to name just a few.

As one of the bike-friendliest states in the country, the event is a great opportunity to receive a blessing for safe travel on the road.

“The reason I want to bless is because when I fall, God helps me recover faster,” young Jadon Speranzella said, holding his skateboard.

People of all faiths were encouraged to attend Sunday’s event.
