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.
Legendary riding spot Bolehills is currently undergoing a period of rejuvenation at the moment with a dedicated crew working hard to restore the BMX track as well as creating an amazing pump track too.
More and more mountain bikers are taking to the road at the moment, either for a change from the current swampy trails or because of inspiration from Brad or even because it just seems less taboo these days to be seen on skinny tyres.

If you are a regular down the Devils Elbow, you might have noticed that a couple of holes have appeared. It was always going to be hard for the original work to cover all the right bits, so we are going to help out with a bit of remedial work

The work that is planned for Piper House Gate Bridleway will be starting this Thursday. We have been asked to tell people to stay off it while the work is being done, particularly on a night.
We have been told that the work being done will be much more sensitive than other council jobs, more akin to the other work that has been done on Blacka. We will also be heading up there to help with a bit of finishing if required. Any feedback after completion is welcome, but just keep off it for now, thanks.
To compliment the work being done by biketrack.org up in Greno Woods at the moment, we are going to be holding a dig day on Saturday the 13th of October up in the woods.
Some have you might have already seen these signs going up on Blacka in the past few days. So it seemed best to give a bit more detail on what is planned.
Blacka is a favourite spot for many Sheffield mountain Bikers and quite rightly so, it offers some fantastic riding right on the doorstep and some may say a couple of the best trails in the Peak. So it was with a little concern that we heard about the planned work. Continue reading
Ride Sheffield supporters and contributors Cotic and Big Stone have been working on a really exciting project and are part funding changing the derelict BMX track in Totley Hall Park into a pump track. Continue reading
