Sometime before he was about to embark on his bicycle ride across the province of Saskatchewan this June, Bishop Rob Hardwick, of the diocese of Qu’Appelle, in the Anglican Church of Canada, was approached by someone wanting to know what the point of it was. Hardwick responded that the nine-day, 723-km (449-miles) ride was to be a pilgrimage for prayer and worship with parishioners, with the goal of raising $10,000 [CAD, approximately £5,800 GBP] to support mission and the Bishop’s Discretionary Fund. The man, Hardwick says, then handed over a cheque for $10,500 on behalf of his family.
