Count down to the Sheffield-Estelí Bike Ride on Sunday May 21st
We are thoroughly looking forward to welcoming you on this year’s ride. The forecast is looking good and the Peaks are looking splendid!
Sheffield has been twinned with Estelí, in Nicaragua, for 30 years and we support a number of youth projects in Estelí through our bike ride.
This year, as in 2016, there will be 3 different rides:
50 miles for those that want a challenging ride through Ringinglow, Hathersage, Bretton, Tideswell, Peak Forest, Mam Tor, Edale, Hope, Yorkshire Bridge, Stanage and Burbage, avoiding main roads where possible. The Edale lunch stop and marshalling point will enjoy its second year at Ruskin Villa, a mile outside the village on the right, as you’ll see in your ride guide. Set off between 8am and 9am.
20 miles for those who want an easier but still hilly bike ride through Burbage, Hathersage, and back under Stanage. Set off between 8am and 9am
10 miles for people who don’t cycle as regularly and children. It is a leisurely, safe ride and goes through Endcliffe Park & Porter Brook to the Alpaca Farm in Ringinglow, and back through Forge Dam. Set off between 9am and 10am
Prices are: individuals £20, concessions and students £7, children £5, children with sponsorship form £3
Sponsorship: We don’t ask for sponsorship but donations over and above the registration fee are welcome. However, we feel that children may be more involved if they collect sponsorship .
Please note: Registration is once again at the Hallamshire Squash and Tennis Club at 716 Ecclesall Rd, Sheffield S11 8TA, just before the Rustlings Road entrance to Ecclesall Park. We are most grateful to them for hosting us.
