Norfolk Churches Trust Sponsored Cycle Ride

Saturday 9 September 2017
Churches are open from 9am to 5pm


Pump up your tyres, dust off your walking boots, pack a picnic and plan a route from your own door to visit as many of the most beautiful churches in Norfolk as you can. PLUS you can raise money to help the Norfolk Churches Trust ...

... preserve these buildings for future generations. Simply get sponsored for each building you visit or make a donation.

The Bike Ride has raised around £2,800,000 over the past 32 years. The money has been divided between the church of the participantís choice and The Norfolk Churches Trust, which gives grants to hundreds of churches for repairs, renovation and the conservation of their buildings. More than 600 churches will be open throughout the day for everyone to explore.

Some interesting facts from the 2016 Bike ride are:

The most churches visited by a participant is 64 by bike and 35 on foot.
Over 150 new participants have been recorded as taking part for the first time.
St Andrewís Church in Norwich saw the highest number of visitors - 75 in total
312 churches and chapels have been nominated to receive a share of the sponsorship money.

Bike, walk, ride or drive around the beautiful Norfolk landscape, stopping off at as many churches and chapels as you can along the way. Be sponsored for your visits or simply make a donation to the Norfolk Churches Trust or to a nominated church or chapel and know that your money is helping to preserve these ancient and important buildings for future generations to enjoy.

Be part of an event that last year raised more than £100,000, made up of donations (some large but many small) that collectively make a huge difference to help preserve Norfolkís churches.

If you arenít already cycling for a church, then please support St Maryís Church in Burnham Deepdale, which is our lovely round towered church on the other side of the road. St Maryís is well worth a visit, to see the Norman Font and beautiful stained glass windows. www.burnhamdeepdale.co.uk/stmarys

Donít have a bike, then no problem as you can hire one from Deepdale Bike Hire.
