UPDATE: Tuesday 18 May – From Preston to Cumbria – Over Shap to the Lakes into Penrith. Then to Carlisle
John left Preston on a gruelling challenging 70 mile journey of high peaks, including climbing the massive Shap Fell and then a further 10 miles dropping through steep valleys across the Lakes into Penrith. Later John will head on to Carlisle, to meet the Revd Dr James Tebbutt, Chair of the Cumbria Methodist District.
Revd John Kime is cycling 2000 miles up and 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'.
