Cycle the Circuit
Plan of route plus church activities on route
Where no church has listed an activity for that day, they have organized a fundraiser for an earlier/later date. It is therefore assumed that the church will be closed during ‘le tour de circuit’ and Mark will simply ride past.

Filey: light lunches available.
Hunmanby: Drinks/loos available. There will be a few people to welcome le tour, and to give Mark a cheque for his chosen charities (money raised at a special social event a few weeks ago).
Burton Fleming: As it is downhill from Hunmanby we don’t anticipate Mark will need much beyond encouragement, tea or coffee or Lucozade and a mars bar.
Wolds Valley: will be serving coffee from 2.30 – 3.30pm on Friday 29th August and be ready to welcome Mark as he does his wonderful cycle trip. Any kind donations for the coffee will be given towards his fundraising. We hope to give out a prayer card to all who come along with a prayer for Christian Aid (Kenya) and St Catherine’s Hospice printed for folk to use in their own devotions.
Sherburn: Come along and cheer him on and enjoy afternoon tea at the same time. Teas will be served from 3.45 – 5pm and any donations for tea will be given to Rev Mark’s charities. The prayer corner will also be available with a prayer card for both charities and the option to light a candle.
