Vatican urges prayer behind the wheel

John Hooper in Rome

The Guardian

Driving a Bugatti Veyron across France not long ago, Jeremy Clarkson remarked that "the roar from the tyres was biblical". Yesterday the Vatican provided its own version of the religious experience of motoring.
Publishing its 10 commandments for drivers, the Vatican suggested they should pray vocally, "especially taking turns with fellow travellers in reciting the prayers, as when reciting the rosary which, due to its rhythm and gentle repetition, does not distract the driver's attention."

    In answer to the thread title... Yes he does ride a bike. He was quite a keen cyclist when he was younger but he still rides now and then (particularly when at his summer residence).

    At the risk of causing offence, Jesus would be a cyclist if He was alive though.
    That Sermon on the Mount is pure bicycle philosophy, "blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the Kingdom of Heaven", he's gotta be a cyclist!

    Of course he rides a bike - how else would he get to the woods to sh<b></b>it?
