I wish it was not so rare, but there seems to be very few pastors that cycle. This being the case, I find much affinity with other pastors who love to bike.
Almost 10 years ago, I met a Canadian pastor, Carey Nieuwhof, at a conference called Orange. I really gleaned a lot of wisdom from his pastor’s roundtable group and have been following his church leadership blog ever since. Much to my amazement, as I started taking up mountain biking, I noticed that he started throwing in comments about his love for biking. It turns out that Carey is more of a roadie now, but I always perk up when he intertwines biking with his pastoral calling.
Here is an EXCELLENT article he posted today entitled, “12 Unpredictable Leadership Lessons I Learned From Cycling.”
