This group was formed in 2019 from new members and from some members of Cycling Monday with whom we have a great relationship. This group is aimed at practiced cyclists who enjoy moderate rides (20-25 miles), at moderate speeds. We mainly stick to tracks, trails, disused railway lines and quiet lanes, avoiding busy main roads and very steep hills.

Because Sheffield and Hope Valley are mostly hilly, it means that we have to get ourselves and our bikes to the start points within a few miles of Sheffield. Whenever possible, we will start the ride from a train station.

We ride nearly every Wednesday but this depends on fair weather. Most rides are suited to hybrid bikes, and often not suitable for lightweight road bikes. Details of the next ride are emailed to group members on the Wednesday before. Members are welcome to suggest routes that they know, and may be able to lead. Most of all, this is a social cycling group, and we always have coffee and/or lunch stops at some point along the way
