Further Information for participants
While a lot of people enjoy the challenge of planning their own route, others prefer to have a route to follow. Some previous year's participants have shared their routes: see below (and main page for a short account of these routes). If you want help in planning a route or in teaming up with others in your area - contact us here.
Ravenstonedale and Orton route.
Penrith Circular Route.
Brampton circular route.
South Kendal area route - 55 miles
If you are an experienced mountain biker, we'd recommend routes taking in Longsleddale, Kentmere and/or Troutbeck churches. See Mountain Bike Cumbria for more info.

Church Warden David May, Team Rector Revd Dave Sargeant and Mrs Sue Tomlinson tackled an arduous 65 mile round trip, taking in over 30 churches to raise funds for St Andrew's Church, Penrith. They had to set out early, as they needed to be back for a special wedding in the afternoon!
