Bike 'n Hike 9 September 2023
Bike 'n Hike - what a scorcher!
It's fantastic to see how people rose to the challenge for Bike 'n Hike on the hottest day of the year.
Many churches hosted special events, such as St Mary's Eaton Bray and St Peter's Berkhamsted with their Heritage Days. Others like Dunstable Priory and All Saints Hertford held coffee mornings, and many offered refreshments and a warm welcome to our Bikers and Hikers.
We hear that St George of England was spotted on his trusty penny farthing bicycle searching for dragons, while a sleek red motorbike was also zooming around the Bike and Hike trail. People of all ages have taken part and on a hot day it was so nice to find the coolness of a lovely church with refreshments and a warm welcome. If you enjoyed Bike 'n Hike, please let us know and send us a photo.
When he cycled his 35 mile route around the Shefford and Stondon area, Steve wasn't expecting to bump into St George riding a penny farthing!
