Cyclists' Church Service
CTC WEST CASTLE COMBE CHURCH SERVICE
Held every year since 27th May 1945, the Castle Combe church service is a celebration of cycling, and a service of thanksgiving for the men in cycling battalions who fell in the Great War and for the many cyclist soldiers, commandos and paras who did not return from World War II.
The Castle Combe church service, like the services held in May on the village green at Meriden, the centre of England, and at Coxwold, a few miles north of York, is now a memorial service and an informal, ecumenical gathering – especially for today’s cyclists in the West Country.
This year’s service will be held at St Andrews Church, Castle Combe on Sunday 13th April at 2.30pm, and will be followed by tea and cake served in the church.
