Ride & Stride 2018

On Saturday 8th September 2018,

Once again, Andy Hamilton (together with Richard Bartlam this year!)

will be cycling on behalf of St Cyr’s

for the Gloucestershire Historic Churches Trust.

They will be cycling to as many churches as they can within about 6 hours and expect to visit up to 30 churches. Please reward the for their efforts!
If you would like to join them, or participate with your own tour of local churches on foot, on bike, in a car or on horse, please let Andy know.
Richard has setup up a fundraising web page at

or please complete the sponsorship form at the back of St Cyr’s,
completing the Gift Aid details if they are applicable.

Thank you for your support and generosity.
This Charity provides valuable funds and expertise to maintain all our amazing Churches in the country.

Ride+Stride is England’s open churches day, but as well as getting out and visiting churches, chapels and meeting houses,  you can also raise money to help churches in good repair. The idea is to visit as many places of worship as possible open near you and also get sponsored for visiting them. In 2015 Ride+Stride raised almost £1.5 million for churches.

The sponsorship money you raise is shared 50/50 between a county church trust that helps historic churches and the individual church of your choice.

Ride+Stride is organised locally by county church trusts with national support provided by the National Churches Trust which runs the Ride+Stride website and provides marketing advice. Ride+Stride started in Suffolk in 1981 as a sponsored bike ride but quickly became a national event.
