This Saturday sees the annual Ride & Stride in aid of our local, historic churches. It’s free to take part but they ask that you raise a little sponsorship if you can (or make a donation). As ever, marvellous Mary has planned us a route. Most of the churches will provide a drink and some of them have eats as well. The ride might therefore take a little bit longer than is usual for a tea ride.
The plan is:-
Leave Ivinghoe 10.00 as sharp as poss!
Marsworth ( church)
Long Marston (church)
Aston Abbots (church)
Cubblington ( church)
Wing (church) – planned official Tea Stop for us
At this point Tea Riders wanting to make their way home can head off, down Wing Park hill to the crossroads and then left to Ledburn, take the next right, then the next left, go under Bridego Bridge and then turn right at the T-junction, heading back home through Great Gap and up into Ivinghoe. Those wishing to do the Full Mary can continue with her, off to Mursley, Stewkley, Mentmore, Slapton, Cheddington and home.
Details of how to donate can be found here, on the Historic Churches Trust website.
Please assemble at the Rose and Crown by 10am for a prompt departure – Mary is in charge!
