Time is rolling itself round to the end of another year, which can only mean that we are approaching this years Ride Sheffield Winter Social. So on Monday the 24th of November we will be taking to our usual venue of the Lescar on Sharrowvale Road, to chat about what we have been up to over the past year; but more importantly for you to tell us what you would like us to be focusing on next year. Also once the formal bit is out of the way it will be time for the quiz and raffle/auction too Continue reading
….but on this occasion, the meeting was pretty much an unqualified success. Continue reading
Next Tuesday 19th of November we will be taking up our usual position in the back room of the Lescar from 7.00pm onwards for our winter social. Its going to include the usual stuff such as the bike jumble and the quiz, but we are going to have a bit of a different take on the AGM style bit of the meeting. Continue reading
With the Winter Social coming up shortly, we wanted to make sure we didn’t spend all night talking at you this year – we really want to hear what you’ve got to say. Where have we got it right, where have we got it wrong and what else would you like us to be doing? Continue reading
While we have always had a big meeting in the run up to Christmas, that serves as a bit of a social and quiz; as well as us letting you know what has been going on and giving you a chance to chat to people from the SCC ROW team, Eastern Moors, Wildlife Trust etc. We have also held an AGM for the past two years ever since we became a constitutionalised organisation. 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
If evidence was required that the Peak District National Park Authority is taking cycling seriously it arrived in the form of the first ever Peak Park Cycling Summit held recently at Thornbridge Outdoors in Great Longstone. Ride Sheffield should again take pride in the fact that we were invited to the meeting and, on a number of occasions, asked by fellow cyclists and organisations how we’d managed to get such a vibrant and effective group established so quickly to which the obvious reply was, well that’s Sheffield mountain bikers for you! Continue reading
No, trust me, it’s much more interesting than it sounds…..
Blackamoor is arguably home to some of the best MBing in the Peak and Ride Sheffield was well represented at the latest Reserve Advisory Group meeting with Si from http://www.18bikes.co.uk/, Henry and me in attendance. These meetings are an opportunity for site managers Sheffield Wildlife Trust to both take soundings from those who visit and to inform them of what is coming up. Continue reading
Ride Sheffield’s second open meeting was once again standing room only as the local mountain bike community turned out in force. The Lescar public house is rapidly turning into one of the local scene’s spiritual homes and the big turnout was rewarded by appearances from a number of people whose decisions affect our riding on a daily basis. Continue reading
With the clocks going backwards this weekend and winter starting to slip its frosty and damp ways back into our lives, it must mean that it is almost time for the winter social! So make sure you keep Monday 26th of November free from about 7.30pm onwards. Continue reading
After rain effected play on the social ride the other day. we decided it was better to leave the AGM till another day to do it.
So it will now be this coming Monday the 16th of July at 2030. We will be meeting at the Norfolk Arms in Ringinglow. Which means you can get a bit of a ride in first on what is looking like a sunny evening and then come and chat to us, tell us what you think and what you would like us to do as well as voting in a President, Treasurer and Secretary for the coming year.
