The Sheepskulls Saga

Tom riding Sheepskulls. Proof that riders can police themselves….

December Trail Day: Cannings Christmas Special

Well its our last trail day of the year and we thought it would be a good idea to have a festive special up in Lady Cannings this coming Saturday the 8th of December.

We will be meeting in the carpark on SheepHill Road at 10 am and will be out on the trails for approximately 2-3 hrs. The trails are running pretty well, but we want to make sure they are ready for the full onslaught of winter kick is. We will be clearing leaf litter, un-blocking drainage, patching the trail and promoting the flow on both trails.

As its Christmas, we will have some delicious mince piece to keep your energy levels well stocked up and our trail day sponsors Bike-Track have kindly agreed to buy you all a mulled wine or a pint (or whatever is your preference) in the Norfolk Arms after the work is completed. Continue reading

Winter Social – 26th November 2018

The Winter Social has long been a part of the fabric of Ride Sheffield, it’s a great chance for us to tell you what we have been up-to and what we have planned for the coming year and more importantly, getting your thoughts and feedback on the direction we should be going in. But is also a good opportunity to catch up with friends, have a couple of beers and chat bikes, not to mention win great prizes in the quiz and raffle too.

This year will be our 9th winter social (maybe we need a big party for our 10th birthday next year) and we have been trying to keep things fresh and interesting for you, to make it as enjoyable as possible. So what can you expect this year….? Continue reading

November Trail Day – Blacka

Blacka has always been a bit of a November favourite for us, it’s always good to get the trails ready for the winter so they give us some more sustainable riding in the winter and come out looking and riding sweetly in the spring.

Our volunteers have been out on a few midweek sessions recently (give us an email if you fancy being part of the midweek crew), but there’s still lots to do up there.
