Cyril Ashton, one of the Church of England's bishops, a post he has held for 11 years, is trading in his pulpit for a motorcycle. At the ripe age of 69, the bishop is retiring, and plans to spend his time with his beloved motorcycles (and classic cars).
Together with 2 of his 4 children, they plan to tour the country on their motorcycles.
The bishop said: “Over the years I have been a biker and interested in classic cars. I’ve never really been able to get into the culture because most things happen on a Sunday and I’m usually quite busy on a Sunday."
