popular, National event takes place each year on the second Saturday in
September, when cyclists, walkers and riders visit as many places of worship, of all
denominations, as possible between 10 am and 6 pm. The money raised
through sponsorship and donations is divided equally between the
participants' nominated church or chapel and the Trust, although the Trust
retains the Gift-Aid element.

Everything looks set for another good year with over 200 Shropshire
churches and chapels open on the 12th September for our Ride+Stride national
target this year is to raise £30,000.
Teams are already getting ready for the big day, and individuals too, with a few people using their cars to help them get around; not all of us are able to walk between rural churches so filling up a car with friends and riding and striding makes sense. We even have a pub hosting a very successful team (looking at last year's contribution!): the Kangaroo Inn at Aston on Clun.
We launched this year's Ride+Stride in July with a photo shoot outside St Alkmund's in Shrewsbury (see image above) with a lovely open-top 1928 Bentley; an 1881 Penny Farthing; the Town Crier, Martin Wood; Father Mark Chadwick from St Chad's; and Ben Porter who helped us hold up the banner. The Shropshire Star photographer covered the event and we had good articles appear in both the Chronicle and The Shropshire Star, all very helpful in reminding people what we are all up to... please join in.
If this is your first time in taking part and you need help in any way, do please contact us; meanwhile enjoy planning your route from the list of churches and chapels ready to welcome you on the day, many offering refreshments and a welcome rest!
We are extremely grateful to our sponsors this year: Arrol and Snell Ltd, Morris & Co Ltd, Wace Morgan and Cooper Green Pooks, with their generous donations helping towards reducing our costs. Thank you very much.
2014 Results! What an incredible result: £24.578 raised on 13 September by riders and striders, so a very big thank you to participants, sponsors and donors for helping us raise this magnificent total. Please click here to view result details and here to see the review and images.
