Drawing on his experiences of ministerial formation in South Africa during the latter years of apartheid, and of thirty-five years of ministry in Yorkshire, the Bishop of Selby John B. Thomson takes readers on a unique and fascinating journey into discipleship and ministry as seen through the eyes of a cyclist.

Bishop John explains: how we learn most, as Jesus taught us, through the gift of strangers; the importance of devoting time to learn the history, stories and language of the people and the places we serve; the nature and character of suffering; how we can live creatively and hopefully, even in tragedy; key themes of Christian leadership, concluding that the majority of Christian leaders - like those who lead cycle rides - are relatively unknown but actually have the most impact on others; the ways in which cycling, discipleship and ministry must involve the body and the senses; the importance of tackling new and challenging issues that are not always easy to resolve. In a world besotted by speed, we see how contemplative travel deepens and expands so many aspects of our lives. Bishop John proves to be a wise and entertaining guide and companion on this journey.
