The simple ideas are always the best, and RIDE+STRIDE is a simple idea: discover some of London's hidden gems, get fit, and raise money for your church (and others too).
Part of a national movement, RIDE+STRIDE 2014 is looking for people to get out and about and visit as many London churches as possible in one day - by bike, on foot, even by public transport - and to get sponsored for doing it. All denominations and types of church building are included, half the money raised goes directly to your own church and half towards grants to help churches with repairs.
The date is Saturday 20 September.
You can get involved in a number of ways:
- We're after riders, walkers and church-crawlers to participate
- We're looking for volunteers to be at St Mary's to open and welcome R&S Pilgrims throughout the day
There's a video to explain more about the event.
RIDE+STRIDE will be educational, enjoyable, healthy, and companionable. It works for young and old alike, it's good for the environment, it brings London churches together in a small way, and it's going to raise money. You can do it on your own, or you can do it with others. For some it might even be nicely competitive, but most of all, it will be a great day out.
