PARTICIPANTS’ RESOURCES

 

 

 Ride + Stride 2018 takes place on Saturday 8th September 2018

Ride + Stride offers the chance to walk or ride a route of your choice; long, short or intermediate, its up to you. Take pleasure in organising your route, challenge yourself by ticking off as many churches as you can, or visit just one or two churches that are new to you and really explore their history. Enjoy the countryside or explore your heritage, clock up the largest number of churches by walking in town and planning the most efficient route possible or just amble in the counryside. Most churches will be open and will provide refreshments and some have toilet facilities so plan your route with this in mind. In order that you can start planning your route a list of churches that will be open and the facilities that they offer is available to download below.

You don’t need to register to take part in Ride + Stride, but we ask that you make a donation or collect sponsorship for BHCT. In order to do this you will need to download a sponsorship form, or better still, set up a Just Giving page, if you are unsure how to do this the instructions are available in the box at the bottom left hand side of the Home page of this website.

Every area (or Deanery) has a representative who will be able to assist you in taking part; email: ridestride@bucks-historic-churches.org to be put in touch with your local representative. In addition to Area organisers each Parish (or Church) has a representative who will be able to assist you with more local information, their details will be available from your deanery representative or from posters on your church notice board.
