Each year, on the second Saturday in September, the annual sponsored Ride+Stride takes place between 9 am and 5 pm in East and West Sussex. This year it will happen on Saturday 14th September 2019.

The event is fairly unique in that there is no fixed route – thus it encourages people to see the wonderful churches and chapels we have in the area and to explore parts of Sussex that they may not normally see. In Sussex there are over 600 churches involved, some of them almost a thousand years old.  A large number of the churches provide refreshments which are freely available to those who take part.

Ride+Stride is an event that all ages can enjoy – families are welcome to take part as well as individuals. Half of the money raised will go to your nominated church, chapel or organisation and the other half to the Sussex Historic Churches Trust, to give grants towards essential repairs and for the fabric of our historic churches, allowing their beauty to be appreciated by future generations.

To add a little spice and a competitive spirit we award trophies to both the cyclists and the walkers. There is an Individual, a Team and an under 16 trophy for both groups and an under 16’s team cyclists trophy. Each church is given a number of points depending on its location. Some churches are easier to get to than others and the points reflect this, the higher the points the harder to get there.

Take part and have fun

Why not take part and have some fun. You do not need to be a churchgoer to participate. You can cycle, walk, go by horse or in a wheelchair. Anyone can take part from babies in backpacks to those who are young at heart. Groups like the Salvation Army, scouts, and the sea cadets take part, so why not get a group of friends together, or go as a family, or by yourself and enjoy the wonderful Sussex countryside and its amazing churches.

Thank-you.
