Cathedral Cycle Route 2021
12 May 2021
The Cathedrals Cycle Route is taking place this Summer and the sixth leg sees riders travel from Wakefield Cathedral on Thursday 3rd June – World Bicycle Day, down to Sheffield Cathedral.
Cyclists will have the opportunity to enjoy the near 30-mile route to Sheffield Cathedral, stopping at St. Mary's Church, Wombwell on the way for a well earned refreshment stop. Riders can choose to do the full leg, just part of the event or simply come along to the cathedral to wave the riders off.
This leg forms part of a nationwide cycle route that begins on Sunday 30th May in Newcastle, and takes in all 42 Anglican cathedrals across a 2000-mile cycling pilgrimage, before returning to the start on Saturday 10th July.
The schedule for Thursday 3rd June is as follows (subject to change and conditions on the day):
10:00 - Riders leave Bradford Cathedral
12:00 - Riders stop at Dewsbury Minster
13:00 - Riders arrive at Wakefield Cathedral
15:00 - Riders arrive at St Mary's Church, Wombwell
16:30 - Riders arrive at Sheffield Cathedral
The Cathedrals Cycle Route is a unique partnership between Sustrans, Cycling UK, the British Pilgrimage Trust and the Association of English Cathedrals. It is a new initiative to promote greener travel and mental and physical wellbeing.
