Leicestershire Ride+Stride has been the continuing critical fund-raiser for the County and City’s Churches, Chapels and Meeting Houses for nearly 30 years, raising over £1 million.  The money is divided half and half between the participating places of worship and the Leicestershire Historic Churches Trust which awards repair and community facilities’ grants to historic churches.

In 2019, Ride+Stride is on Saturday 14th September. Around 300 sponsored cyclists, walkers, runners, joggers, horse-riders, motor scooter drivers and welcomers providing hospitality in churches join in to follow routes they choose around the 400 or so churches which register to open for the event.  Some churches devise a communal route and enjoy the fellowship and fun of a day out in a group, children and young people included.

Plenty to visit

How about visiting churches at and around Dadlington, St James or Sutton Cheney, St James, with their King Richard III associations (memorial at Sutton Cheney) and proximity to the Battle of Bosworth Battlefield Visitor Centre, or Leicester Cathedral, the resting place of the King’s remains from late March 2015?

Gaddesby, St Luke

Exceptionally rich decorated gothic stonework.  Startling white marble Waterloo memorial of Col. Cheney on horseback.

Lubenham, All Saints

Georgian box pews and three-decker pulpit.

Claybrooke Parva

Decorated chancel tracery, carvings galore include imps and monsters. Fine, spacious chancel.

Leicestershire Ride+Stride has a place for you and your church friends this year!  Remember!  Always on the second Saturday in September!

To register your place of worship as opening (if your church Local Organiser if not already on the annual mailing list) or to seek further information on what’s happening in Leicestershire, or to request a sponsorship form from your Ride+Stride Co-ordinator click on the link or send us an email.
