Since the beginning of Lent on Wednesday 17th February, our vicar Justin and his wife Lucy have been extremely busy virtually cycling their way around Great Britain. Even while off the bike, they have been tackling many culinary challenges, which were inspired by milestones along the way and appear to have been both bizarre and delicious in equal parts.
This feat of pedalling and cooking is all to raise funds for our exciting and ambitious refurbishment project (details and more photos to come soon). With one week to go, we have passed the sum of £7,500 and we are still aiming for £10,000 from the Bike Off overall. If you would like to contribute any amount, small or large, please visit the donation page.
Tomorrow will be Justin’s chance to shine in the kitchen, attempting the famous Welsh rarebit, before the space station finale leg this week and an anticipated completion of the full mileage on Saturday 3rd April. You can see all the virtual stops below and scroll down further for some foodie highlights from the journey so far (warning this may may you hungry).
