Description

Details

Sitwell CC Road Captain:

Ben Daly

Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 8am.

Heading southbound out of Whiston we climb up Guilthwaite towards Ulley. Next it's on to the Straight Mile taking the usual roads to Harthill where we take a right towards Eckington via Spinkhill. Staying west of the M1 we make our way South before crossing the M1 to Climb Carr Lane into Palerton. Next it's onto Galpwell and then the Cafe stop at Hardwick Hall. After a short rest and supplies we descend down towards the motorway before heading North towards Bolsover. After climbing into Bolsover we'll take the quiet country roads around Clowne towards Dinnington and back to HQ.

Total distance is 59 mile / 95 km with total elevation gain 4,265 feet / 1,300 metres.

The Café stop will be at Hardwick Hall.

The pace on this ride will be approx 15+ mph.

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.
