The Very Reverend Ray Waldon, Dean of the Cathedral, first said a prayer to bless all who came. After that. he and the rest of the Priests of the Episcopal church individually blessed each bike. Everyone in attendance was also given a St. Christopher's medallion as well.
Along with the prayer, they also held a bike safety rodeo put on by the Salt Lake City Police dept. The Navy came to attach reflectors and do a quick tune-up on the kids bikes.
Dean Waldon said that they wanted to focus the spotlight on safety, that there are too many who die or are needlessly injured.
