On Sunday 10 May, the Bishop of Swindon began a 120 mile cycle ride that he will complete over this Christian Aid Week 10 - 16 May 2020.
Three months after a serious cycling accident, Bishop Lee is returning to ministry in the Diocese of Bristol and marking this by raising funds for Christian Aid which will be used to support the world's poorest communities such as those in Eastern Africa now facing threats from coronavirus in addition to climate crisis, conflict and locust swarms.'
As part of his continuing physiotherapy, the Bishop will be getting on his bike again, this time a stationary one in his garage, in order to cycle around the Diocese of Bristol.
The route - a virtual one - will pass by the Cathedral, the Bishop of Bristol's House and through each of the seven deaneries. The total distance will be around 120 miles cycled over Christian Aid Week
Bishop Lee will be sharing the route online each day, but does not advise people to wait outside their houses looking for him! He would love to raise a significant amount for Christian Aid, a charity which is world-facing and does so much for the poorest and has set up an online giving page
