Bike and Hike 2020 Logo

Our Bike 'n Hike challenge this year was to cycle to all the churches in the MK45 post code that are part of the Ampthill & Shefford Deanery, plus a few others on the way, or close by. In total, 21 churches were visited.

As most were closed, selfies were taken at each church and posted onto the sm3a Whatsapp page so supporters could track the progress of the challenge. Amazingly despite the romote locations of many of the churches the tech seemed to work really well, and a couple of people even donated via our Bike 'n Hike Just Giving page. This is still open for donations if you would like to contribute...

So, here are the selfies (no prizes for photographic skills here!):
