Despite a rainy 2016 Ride+Stride there was good support from St Mary's Barkby. Here Sarah Smith (Churchwarden) and her brother Richard Kirk are geared up for their ride despite the pouring rain which was continuous on their 21 churches - about 40 miles' route.
LHCT trustees thank them and all our wet and bedraggled cyclists, walkers, mobility scooters drivers and others who valiantly turned out for the event.
