Keeping Somerset Churches & Chapels Alive
Because of the on-going coronavirus situation this years event will be a little different. Do not expect churches and chapels to be open. Plan your trip on the basis that you will only be able to visit the outside of the church. If churches are open please follow the current rules on face coverings etc. and any other requirements the church may ask for.
You can download the forms you need here.

Ride+Stride offers a great opportunity to visit churches and chapels that you may not have been to before, raise valuable funds, and have a wonderful day out!

Some of these routes make reference to the church being open with toilets and/or refreshments being available. Please be aware that this year this may well not be the case.

If you would prefer a physical form, download below. If you have difficulty with printing, let us know and we can print off small quantities for you.
Whilst it is not a legal or insurance requirement, if you are organising an event involving a large group of people, particularly where children are taking part, you should carry out some form of risk assessment just to ensure that your day goes off smoothly and without mishap. To make this easy we have produced a generic risk assessment covering cycling, walks, horse riding and vehicles. Click on Risk Assessment below to open the form. You do not have to follow this to the letter but use this as the basis for your own individual event and tailor it as you think reasonable commensurate with the hazards on your route.
If you have a Ride+Stride story to tell, contact us and we’ll add it to the website.
