Description

THIS IS NOT A SITWELL CC EVENT

The event is run by Sportive HQ on behalf of Rotherham Wheelers.

Sitwell Cycling Club will be running no rides on this day and encourage all members to sign up the sportive as a show of support for our friends in Rotherham Wheelers.


----

Not many clubs can boast 100 years of existence but in 2020 Rotherham Wheelers will be 100 years old! Join us for two fantastic routes to celebrate their centenary, unlike many of our events a bespoke medal to celebrate will be given to every rider who finishes either of these two epic challenges. Both rides take on some famous Yorkshire climbs such at the Strines, one certainly not to be underestimated.

Come together in 2020 and celebrate this one off cycling extravaganza!

Great routes, great feeds, chip timed and all of the usual Sportive HQ Style!

What do you need?
Helmets are required, and carry at least one spare inner tube plus a basic tool kit comprising a minimum of:

Multi-tool
Tyre levers
Chain tool (chain breaker)
One inner tube (preferably two)
Spanner (with multiple size holes, helps with brake/pedal situations)
Spoke key
Mini pump (or gas canisters and valve)
An emergency tenner (useful at the cafe stop if nothing else)
In the Winter months riders should have full length mudguards and preferably a mudguard flap - it helps to keep our kit clean!

Our no-drop policy applies to every club ride so there will usually be a tool for the job amongst us somewhere and hands on deck to help out. However, it's still wise to carry a toolkit of your own in case you have to head back home alone for any reason.

Rules of the road
Everyone on a club ride needs to take responsibility for the safety of others as well as for themselves. In order to ensure our rides remain safe as well as good fun, we ask all our members to follow some basic rules and standards of cycling etiquette.

If you're considering just doing part of this ride we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the area and/or bring a map of some kind. However, if you ask the Road Captain they will help as much as possible in directing you.

Please let someone know if you leave the ride/group as we don't want to waste time searching for you if nothing is wrong.

If you are struggling in anyway don't suffer in silence, please let the Road Captain know so they can help if possible.

Disclaimer
This is an opportunity to meet up for a ride with others and socialise. Although someone will be determining the route you are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
