Ride Sheffield Winter Social Goes Down A Storm

The Ride Sheffield Winter Social at a new venue and the weather decides to come over all biblical. Will anyone turn up?

I guess we really should have more faith. The Sheffield mountain biking community isn’t going to be put off by head high floods on Abbeydale Road, they love a challenge.

Long Distance Horse Ride at Greno Woods

On Sunday 5th June Greno Woods will be hosting a long distance horse ride. As a consequence, the bridleway loop on the reserve will be busier than usual, and all site users are asked to show particular consideration when using the reserve’s bridleways to avoid inadvertently startling the horses. In particular dogs should be kept under close control and mountain bikers are asked to check their speed when entering the bridleway network at the end of downhill runs.

With thanks, Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust
