UPDATE: Ely to Norwich
Well refreshed and back in the saddle, Revd John Kime headed off from Peterborough to Ely Cathedral. After a brief stop he powered his way North zig zagging across the Fens to Norwich, where he delivered the climate change action letter to East Anglia District Methodist Chair, Revd Julian Pursehouse. After a quick cuppa it was off to see historic Norwich Cathedral.
Today has underlined the reason why John is campaigning for a greener world for all, "This is why I am doing this ride. For hours yesterday and today I have traversed the Fens. Much has been at, or below, sea level. Because we are burning carbon fuels recklessly, we are raising the temperature of the atmosphere and melting the ice caps. Our best farming land will be flooded, never to be used again. Not in a hundred years but in our life time, and certainly our children's lifetime. It will be a crisis that makes COVID look simple to sort. Livelihoods and lives will be lost. Just think of these pictures when you fill a car with fuel, or fly somewhere. With love and hope".
Revd John Kime meets Revd Julian Pursehouse, Chair of the East Anglia Methodist District
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'.
