The WCHCT has set up a brand new fundraising bike ride event this year and we hope you will join us for this unique midsummer ride through the stunning Warwickshire countryside. (This event is taking place in addition to Ride & Stride 2018).
Dame Judi Dench, our Patron, 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.”
Shakespeare’s Scenery Cycle Ride will take place on the weekend of Saturday June 30th and Sunday July 1st 2018. Our fully supported Heritage Ride will start and end at Stoneleigh Park and you can cycle with us for one day or for the whole weekend.
Join us on your own, with friends or family (and children over 12 years old) and enjoy riding through the fantastic scenery that Shakespeare know and loved. You will stop off for snacks and lunch breaks at churches and places of historic interest where you will learn their fascinating secrets and stories.
