another cycling enthusiast

I just learned that the Methodist Resident Bishop for my geographic region is an avid bicyclist. This month's newsletter contains a bicyclists' prayer (http://www.cal-pac.org/circuit/cw020524.pdf) and a picture of the Bishop flanked by two other helmeted, jerseyed cyclists. (The numerous tandem couples out there should note that she and her husband are touring tandemers, as well.)

Read the bottom paragraph of Bishop Swenson's bio at:

http://www.cal-pac.org/journal/Bishop's%20Bio.pdf

It probably doesn't hurt to have friends in high places.

Our archbishop used to be an avid runner and published a book called, "The Divine Runner." I think he uses indoor equipment and plays tennis now (as he always has,) but I'd love to get him on a bicycle. He's 75 yrs. old and a strong believer in physical exercise.
