The Sponsored Bike, Ride and Drive will take place on Saturday 9th September 2017.
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 participant’s 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 Andrew's 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.
