Take part in the Cathedrals Cycle Route

08 June 2022
The 2022 Cathedrals Cycle Route kicked off on 6 June with intrepid cyclists pedalling from Newcastle Cathedral to Hexham Abbey. Now the search is on for cyclists to take part in the Norwich Cathedral legs of the relay which will take place on 5 and 6 July.
Cathedrals Cycle Route

Now in its second year, the CCR links all 42 English Cathedrals, with cyclists handing over a baton at each Cathedral. It aims to raise the profile of sustainable travel, new links with neighbouring Cathedrals, to encourage people onto their bikes and to raise money for worthwhile charities. Cycling can uplift our spirits and improve our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

Norwich Cathedral's Cycling Champion is David Clover, ex-chorister and current chair of the Norwich Cathedral Ex-Choristers Guild, who himself will be cycling the route from St Edmundsbury to Norwich on Tuesday 5 July, and then on to Ely on Wednesday 6 July and Peterborough on Thursday 7 July.

David is keen to recruit more cyclists to participate in any of these legs, in part or in full. For more information please contact David on david.clover@quadra-foil.com or, alternatively, register for a place via this link,

David would also like to hear from people who would like to help welcome riders from St Edmundsbury arriving at Norwich Cathedral on Tuesday 5 July and see the riders off on the next leg to Ely on the morning of Wednesday 6 July. 

The plan is to have a small reception committee at the West Door on the arrival of riders from St Edmundsbury and a similar group to wish ‘bon voyage’ on the morning of the departing riders to Ely, together with a blessing.
