Theologian, advocate for all things green and notorious cyclist Dr John Thomson, our own Bishop of Selby, is leading hour-long webinar training sessions, open to all, once a month from October 2021 to June 2022, on the theme "On Your Bike: Reflections of a Pedal Pilgrim”.
The webinars begin on the 20th October with an explanatory session "In the Saddle: cycling and faith", though Bishop John stresses that there is no need to commit to all the sessions, and participants are welcome at any or all.
Each evening will push off at 7.30pm with twenty minutes' input and reflection from the pedalling prelate, break into small pelotons for twenty minutes' discussion of questions, and then come together for a final twenty minutes' freewheeling forum of ideas and conclusions before an 8.30pm dismount.
Titles include "In Suffering: cycling and facing tough times", "In the Spirit: cycling and spirituality" and "In the Rough: cycling and hard questions". The full programme is below.
