Sheffield CTC Intermediate Sunday Ride
Sun 9 April 2017, 09:30 – 17:30 BST
Moderate distance but intermediate difficulty. Ride Leader John Pitt
Leave Riverside Cafe, Hillsborough at 9.30am (l have asked them to open at 9am.) Out to Grenoside, Wortley, Hood Green, Silkstone Common, Silkstone, Cawthorne, Upper Denby, Penistone to Stocksbridge. 'Lunch' at Full Gas Cycles, Fox Valley, Stocksbridge after 26 miles. The route back (23 miles) is hilly with some hard climbs. Out to Midhopestones, the Strines, left before the A57 dropping down past Damflask reservoir to Loxley and back to Riverside Cafe.
Points: Full Gas Cycles are expecting us, but their Cafe normally does cakes and drinks etc not a full lunch menu. They will get in some sandwiches, and to help them order it would be good if l had an idea of numbers coming - be very helpful if you would let me know if you are intending to join the ride. Fox Valley, where the Tour of Yorkshire will finish on Sunday 30 April, also has other places where you can buy food, including a Greggs opposite Full Gas Cycles.
There is a marathon/half marathon in Sheffield on Sunday which will lead to some road closures.
I will bring a map of the return route in case anyone wants to lead a breakaway group of superstars back, as happened last week.
