Come and join us for a fantastic summer Cycle Ride on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July with your friends or family.
This year we are introducing our first midsummer Heritage Cycle Ride. (It’s a completely separate event from Ride and Stride which takes place in September.)
Dame Judi Dench, one of our Patrons, has sent the following message of support:
“Churches and chapels are at the heart of our British heritage, and Shakespeare Country – which I am so fond of – is where some of the most beautiful ones in Britain were built and still stand sentinel over the landscape.
Please help our Trust to preserve our precious past by joining us on a fantastic midsummer fundraising Ride, cycling through stunning Warwickshire scenery and visiting places that would have inspired the Bard in his lifetime.”
Cycle with us on the Saturday or the Sunday – or for the whole weekend. It is a signed route and fully supported by our Ride organisers, with back-up vehicle, mechanical support and first aiders, you will travel through our beautiful Warwickshire villages with their thatched cottages … and past our county’s churches, magnificent manor houses and famous castles, stopping off and discovering their stories and fascinating secrets.
