Our event map page contains the latest status of the churches for the forthcoming Ride+Stride event. The information on the map comes from our Local Organisers. If you are the Local Organiser for a church on the map (or yours is missing) please update the County Organiser as soon as possible since other people may be relying on the information. If your church has a yellow map pin as we approach August then your County Organiser is waiting for you to complete Question 8 of the Local Organiser’s Questionnaire. Please get in touch if you have no idea what that means!


If any of the information on the map proves incorrect, please accept our apologies but do let us know about the problem when you discover it so we can try to fix the system and prevent others having issues too. If you are really relying on any information on this page, contact your County Organiser (if you do not know the Local Organiser) and he will try to double check details for you. We suggest that you request this in good time and that you check this website on the day before you set off. Thanks.

If you have a route planned, please contact the County Organiser to let him know what it is!

If you see that a church is missing, we would love to know about it. Please contact the County Organiser to let him know!


We have organised the churches with coloured icons based on whether they have declared themselves to be open to visitors or not.
Green map pins have declared themselves open at least some of the time;
Yellow map pins have not declared yet or are not taking part in the event at this time.
Red map pins have declared themselves not open but you can still visit and sign the welcome notice (if present) and your own sponsorship form;

Your feedback on the maps would be appreciated.


Travelling to Other Regions

Many of our participants who travel near the external boundary of our region will visit churches that are outside our region. There is no problem with that. In order to find out about the status of churches outside our region, you will need to look at our neighbouring Trust’s websites listed below for your convenience.
