This has been down to the revived Sheffield Dirt Society and also to the fantastic volunteer effort that has been going on every couple of weeks. Continue reading

MAN THE SPADES!We’re back for 2015.

Not far to go now, we really cracked on at the last dig day and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Plan for the day as usual is to scrape off the grass from the edges of the track to get it back to full width.

The focus of the day is on the final straight and to get her running prime.

Digging Dates for your Diary

547053_255934957830842_100002430187541_553432_1742469406_nIn the past we have been a bit short notice on our digging days, so from now on we will try to get dates in on a quarterly basis.

We also want to be clear on what we do too. So if you seen that we are doing a Dig Day, that means we are working on bike specific trails. That will often mean more technical work and are a good way to learn your craft in trail work. These will usually be on the second saturday of the month. If we are doing a Trail Day that means we will be working on rights of way. This work may be done solely by ourselves or in partnership with the Wildlife Trust, Eastern Moors Partnership, SCC etc. Continue reading

AGM: Update

While this has always been a more low key event, we thought that as there is a lot more going on with Ride Sheffield we would do a little more this year. Continue reading

Peaty’s Steel City Downhill – so much fun, it should be illegal…..

IMG_1080

Start line nerves….

Another Steel City downhill and, crikey, The Force was strong in this one. The Dark Lord Himself, Darth Peaty had issued an ultimatum to the weather gods and, intimidated, they’d capitulated with a month of dry weather prior to the race. Day after day, racers practiced, interrupted occasionally by the Ride Sheffield trail fairies a’fettling and a’shaping, beautifying the berms and tidying the transitions. Come the day, the pessimists of the Met Office were proved wrong yet again as the sun shone and the track stayed snuff dry all day.
