A national 2,000 mile cycle challenge connecting 42 Church of England Cathedrals reached Norwich this week.
Cyclists from St Edmundsbury Cathedral delivered the baton to Norwich on Tuesday 5 July and were cheered on by a welcoming committee as they crossed the Norwich finish line.
On Wednesday morning, the Norwich contingent started the journey to Ely Cathedral after a blessing from the Revd Canon Andy Bryant, Norwich Cathdral’s Canon for Mission and Pastoral Care.
This is the second annual Cathedrals Cycle Route relay, which began from Newcastle Cathedral on 6 June.
The aim is to celebrate the nation’s Cathedrals and promote greener travel and mental and physical wellbeing. It’s the result of a unique partnership between Sustrans, Cycling UK, the British Pilgrimage Trust and the Association of English Cathedrals.
The relay route will finish at Newcastle Cathedral on Sunday 17 July.
