UPDATE: Saturday 29 May – From Chelmsford to St Alban's and rest!
Leaving Chelmsford, John cycled over the M11 bridge into Hertfordshire. Passing through Hertford and Hatfield the 47 mile journey to the Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Alban took almost 4 hours.
Revd John Kime has been cycling every day for 17 days, covering hundreds of miles and both John and his trusty bike are taking a well earned break over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Revd John Kime is taking part in the Cathedrals Cycle Route Challenge, cycling 2000 miles around across England bearing a letter from the Methodist Church's Bristol District Chair, the Revd Dr Jonathan Pye, highlighting the urgent issue of climate change and climate justice.
The letter calls to support actions which will care for creation in a proactive way, lobby the Government which is hosting the COP 26 talks in Glasgow for lasting commitments to care for our planet, and for individuals to take steps 'to tread more lightly upon this earth'.
