Riders urgently needed for Sponsored Cycle Ride

Family Cycling

Following the lead theft last week, we are urgently seeking cyclists (and walkers) who are willing to be sponsored to take part in this years “Ride and Stride” on Saturday 12th September.

“The Sponsored Bike Ride, which takes place on Saturday 12th September is a marvelous opportunity for all the family to be out on the roads and lanes of Suffolk discovering the delights of the countryside, getting good exercise and supporting our ancient churches and chapels with the money you raise”, the Chairman of the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust Patrick Grieve said and added “The churches are your history, help to be their future.”

Routes are decided by each cyclist (or walker), incorporating stops at some of over 500 Suffolk places of worship that will be open to receive them.  Cyclists and walkers can get more details from Pam Evans by phoning 01787 247541 or emailing pam.skylark@btinternet.com

  1. Hi, just to let you know the Aviva Tour of Britain races through Suffolk on Saturday September 12 so a lot of cycling fans will be planning to watch the race. Thought I would mention this in case you aren’t getting the response you hoped for from cyclists. Kind regards Stuart.


    • Thanks for the heads-up Stuart – clearly there are going to be a lot of cyclist on the roads! As the Aviva event clashes with this years annual Historic Churches Trust Cycle Ride across the UK (including here in Suffolk where it began more than 30 years ago!)
