Ride+Stride for Churches

Ride+Stride is a sponsored event in which people walk, cycle or ride a horse between churches, whilst exploring the Dorset countryside and enjoying the hospitality of our church communities.

Supported by The National Churches Trust and in partnership with the Dorset Historic Churches Trust. Ride+Stride opens the doors to some of West Dorset’s most rare and unusual churches and chapels.

This year’s event is on Saturday 10th September 2016.
