Ride & Stride Logo
From 9 am Ride & Stride. Bear Grylls is lending his support to the ‘Ride & Stride’ this year.
Bear Grylls says……“Many historic churches, chapels and meeting houses are battling to survive. Roofs leak, ancient timbers rot and medieval stonework crumbles. Now you can help by joining the Ride+Stride adventure, a sponsored bike ride or walk discovering beautiful churches, which also raises money for their repair and preservation.”
Bear Grylls, Adventurer, Writer and Chief Scout.
