As they have done since 1927 on the 2nd Sunday in May every year, hundreds of pedal cyclists from across Yorkshire and Teeside, will converge on the village of Coxwold, east of Thirsk, for their annual Service of Remembrance at St. Michaels Church, beginning at 1.30 pm.
The small, 14th century church will be filled with a sea of multicoloured jerseys. Cyclists will act as bell ringers, sidesmen, offertory collectors, lesson readers, choristers and organist. Local residents and visitors to the area are welcome to come and join us.
The 45 minute service will be led by the Rector, the Rev Liz Hassall. The guest preacher will be the Rev Norma Johnson.
Organised rides to the service will be arranged by local CTC members, from Hull, York, Leeds, Malton and Teesside. Non-CTC local cycling clubs are warmly welcome to come along.
Refreshments will be on sale in Coxwold village hall from 11 am, and after the Service.
