How to get involved

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 2017 Ride+Stride raised £1.3 million for churches.

The 2022 Ride & Stride takes place on Saturday 10th September. Please click here to download a registration form, or see your local church for more details. 

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.

Ride+Stride started in Suffolk in 1981 as a sponsored bike ride but quickly became a national event.
