2019 Festival is Huge Success

Despite the announcement following  the 2018 Ride 2 Stride Festival that there would not be a Festival in 2019, we must announce that, not only was the Festival held this year, but that it was a resounding SUCCESS!!!

An amazing number of Walkers turned up to each days  walks and, despite the occasional bout of  inclement weather, thoroughly enjoyed the week.
The turnout of a multitude of Musicians & Singers for the evening Music Sessions didn't disappoint either and the weekend numbers were quite astonishing!

Grateful thanks are extended to all the Walk Leaders from the various Organisations who supported the Festival as well as to the 3 Peaks Folk Club for organising the Music each day.

The News page will be updated with actual numbers for each day of the Festival in due course, but for now the overall opinion among those involved, is that we'll do it all again next year and the dates for the 2020 Ride 2 Stride Festival of Walks, Talks & Music will be 28th April to 4th May inclusive.
