The annual biking and walking charity event in support of Suffolk churches takes place this weekend.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday, September 9, from 9am to 5pm, and supports Suffolk Historic Churches Trust.

There are more than 700 churches, chapels and meeting houses open in Suffolk and others in the surrounding counties.

Marian Shaw, ride organiser, said: “Why not get out your walking boots and your helmets and enjoy a healthy day out, exploring the local footpaths and byroads, visiting known churches and chapels and discovering new ones.

“A warm welcome and light refreshments await you at every one.”

Sponsor forms, and church lists to help you plan your route are available at many local churches.
