Welcome

Visit unique historic buildings, see beautiful countryside, get some exercise and have fun with the family!

Ride+Stride is a sponsored bike ride or walk in which people all over England walk or cycle between churches, exploring and enjoying the countryside from Cornwall to Northumberland. The money they raise helps to save historic churches, chapels and meeting houses for future generations by helping to fund urgent repairs and the installation of modern facilities.

Supported by The National Churches Trust and in partnership with county based local churches trusts, Ride+Stride opens the doors to some of England’s most rare and unusual churches, chapels and meeting houses.

A message from Bill Bryson

“I am proud and happy to support the heroic work of the National Churches Trust and hope that you might join me.”
