Ride + Stride

The 2017 Ride + Stride takes place on Saturday 9th September

Ride + Stride is an event like no other why not take part this year and find out for yourself what extraordinary things lie quietly behind the churchyard gates and creaking doors of Buckinghamshire’s many churches and chapels.
Do join in Ride + Stride 2017 on Saturday 9th September – we promise you an unusual and enjoyable day.
Ride + Stride is open to walkers as well as horse-riders and cyclists – in fact to anyone using a non-mechanical form of transport.  It always takes place on the second Saturday of September between 10.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m., and the object is to raise money for the repair and restoration of churches and chapels of any Christian denomination in Buckinghamshire.  Half the money raised goes to the church or chapel of the participant’s choice, and the other half is added to a general fund which is administered by the Bucksinghamshire Historic Churches Trust. Churches are encouraged to make applications to BHCT for grants to help with church repairs and restoration.
This year The Tour of Britain Cycle Race will pass through Buckinghamshire on Saturday 9th September, this is a wonderful opportunity for cyclists and other interested spectators to see the race. So why not take part in Ride + Stride, see the professional cyclists and enjoy a great day out.
