The Bishop of Selby, Revd John Thomson, will be taking part in the 31st Anual Great Selby Bike Ride on Sunday 7th May.

This is to raise money for the Farming Community Network and Selby Lions' chosen charities, some of which are St. Leonard's Hospice, Action for Children and the British Heart Foundation among others.

Bishop John, who also took part in 2015 has been registered as No.1 rider for the second time and will embark on the 45 mile route from Barlby High School.

I'm glad to be taking part again this year - what a great way to enjoy the countryside and support good causes too. I may be registered as No. 1 but I can't guarantee I won't finish as No. 1!
