The annual bike ride event is fully supported by the Bishop of Norwich, the Bishop of Lynn and the Bishop of Thetford.
The Rt Revd Graham Usher, Bishop of Norwich (pictured on the right) said,
“The Norfolk Churches Trust Bike Ride is an invaluable opportunity to fundraise for and support our churches – sacred and special places – treasure troves of memory for generations in all communities across the county. It’s fun too! Why not see how many you can get round in a day?”
The Rt Revd Alan Winton, Bishop of Thetford said,
“What a wonderful way to enjoy a day out around our beautiful county and play your part in the repair and preservation our historic church buildings for future generations.”
If you’d like to take part, there’s still time to sign up. You don’t have to cycle, you can walk or drive and make a day of it with your family or friends and a picnic.
The Rt Revd Dr Jane Steen, Bishop of Lynn said,
“We have even had some folk do part of their church trail via swimming along the coast. Whether you choose to hike, bike or drive, do add your support!”
n addition to the event, you can take part in one of the competitions. The Prince of Wales certificate is awarded to the individual who raises the most money, and your name could be added to the Wall of Fame for the most churches visited. There is also a photographic competition with different categories.
Any money you raise taking part in the event is split between the church of your choice and the Norfolk Churches Trust. More information here.
