March Trail Day – Lady Cannings

cannings 1This months trail day will be in Lady Cannings on Sunday the 6th of March. After the temporary closures of the trail because of the logging work and then due to the record levels of rain this winter, we are just about ready to re open the trail. All that is needed is to give the trail a bit of a tidy up and it will be ready to go. So on Sunday we will be after people to come along and move the logs off the trail, clear up the windblown debris and to make sure the trail corridor is still looking good and then it will be all sweet and ready to take riders again.

The trail will be formally checked on Monday, so please do not ride it until Monday evening. But beyond that enjoy getting reacquainted.  Continue reading

Ride with Peaty for RADmires

peaty lady cAs part of the RADmires fund raising we’re offering two really cool experiences for people to get involved with.

Firstly, Ride With Peaty at RADmires. We are offering 10 lucky people the chance to ride with Steve and be the first riders outside of the project team to ride the RADmires trail. Each rider will meet Steve, ride around the Stanage and RADmires area, and probably get in a cheeky pint afterwards. They also get a signed Ride Sheffield T Shirt made out to them from the man himself. All this for just £200 per rider, and the warm glow of knowing you have helped make an awesome trail happen.

From the cutting of the ribbon to well past sunset it was then  christened by the riders who have all dug into their pockets to raise over fifteen thousand pounds; making the UK’s first ever crowd funded trail a reality. And given the buzz up on the trails it has been a resounding success! Continue reading

Greno Dig Day

Yes, it’s been the worst summer since Noah shouted “Land Ahoy!” and, yes, many Peak District trails are still wetter than an otter’s pocket but there is one ray of sunshine and that, bizarrely given its reputation for sogginess, is Grenoside Woods.  Thanks to the efforts of the Sheffield Wildlife Trust, Bike Tracks trail builders and a willing band of volunteers, the Greno trails are in top condition.
