St Clement, Ashampstead
Thanks to all those who took part in Ride+Stride 2017 – can we do better on Saturday 8th September 2018?
Ride+Stride, the annual sponsored cycle, run or walk is the Berkshire Churches Trust’s main source of income and the largest single ecumenical event in England. It is held on a Saturday during the first half of September in conjunction with sponsored bicycle rides and walks organised by County Trusts across the country. The people who take part donate half of the money they make from sponsorship to the church of their choice and half to the Trust. Why not give it a go this year?
Walks and cycle rides
Those who have taken part in Ride+Stride in previous years will know that participants are free to devise their own routes but this year we have suggested a walk and a cycle ride which we have enjoyed (we would be delighted to add other recommended routes): Peter Durrant, Chairman of the Trust’s Executive committee, has posted a walk around the Reading churches, and there is also an enjoyable, mainly rural, circular cycle route taking in Twyford, Hurst, Binfield, the Walthams, Shottesbrook and Ruscombe. Both will be found on the BCT website.
The Right Reverend Andrew Proud, Bishop of Reading said in support of Ride+Stride: “It’s a no-brainer, really. Cycling and walking are good for your health and well being and to combine them with raising money for our beautiful Berkshire churches means everyone wins. This is a really worthwhile thing to do and I encourage you to get your walking boots on or get on your bike and join in.”
