Cathedrals Cycle Pilgrimage
Monday 6th June
At the beginning of Cycle Week 2022, Wales joins the Cathedrals Cycle route. This begins in St Davids and connects our historic cathedrals. The relay will transport a specially commissioned baton, passing it to groups at each cathedral who can join the ride for as little or as long as they like. A group will return 10 days later (weather permitting) having cycled every Church in Wales cathedral.
Friday 10th June, 11am-3pm
Gain a new perspective on life as you walk a guided pilgrimage (4 miles), pausing for stories and reflections en route. Or take a reflective, leaflet guided walk around the cathedral with an opportunity to participate in guided, quiet meditation in the Lady Chapel. The Labyrinth will also be available for use. Pilgrimage service at 3pm. Meet inside the main doors of the cathedral.
