Why rabbis should get on their bikes

The first Rabbis Relay Ride which ended recently appears to have been a great success, raising £30,000 for charity.
More than 20 rabbis took the saddle at various stages along the way from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
What was significant is that the participants embraced representatives from across the board, Orthodox, Reform, Liberal and Masorti.
Is this the beginning of a changing climate within British Jewry? Once upon a time such an event would have hard to mount because too many Orthodox rabbis would have objected to the use of “rabbi” to describe ministers of other movements.
