This last saturday I passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) Observers test. Now I am qualified to take people out for advanced motorcycle skills practice, to help them prepare for advanced IAM motorbike test.
I've written recently on the parallels between sport/leisure and discipleship, and in particular the process of how a group of volunteers passionate about motorbike riding, have helped 'disciple' me.
I have enjoyed the training, passing the test and am look forward to helping others develop their riding skills, but there is something palpable in this process that I 'sense' and savour. How I get to pass on riding skills, that were passed on to me by others that they had received from others.
BTW if you are in the UK and ride a motorbike, do try out the IAM Skills for Life course. Join up and I'll take you our for an OR (observed ride) ;-)
