SAVE THE DATE!
Sunday 22nd May, 2022
Each year we look forward to welcoming more intrepid riders and walkers to help us raise funds for the environmental, social and human rights projects that we support in Nicaragua.
For the last two years we had to suspend our bike ride due to Covid, but this year on Sunday 22nd May we are delighted to be planning not only our 20 and 50 mile rides, but also a Friendship Walk of around 4 miles for those who fancy a gentler fundraiser! (Scroll down for more info, registration guidance and ride guides).
The Two Peaks Bike Ride always promises great views for our riders over the glorious Dark and White Peak of the Peak District National Park, and tasty treats at the Edale lunch stop. There are two signed and marshalled rides, of 20 and 50 miles respectively.
The Friendship Walk will lead walkers through Endcliffe Park, Bingham Park and Whitely Woods, up to Forge Dam, with equally tempting treats on offer along the way.
Both rides and the walk will set out from the premises of our wonderful hosts, the Hallamshire Tennis and Squash Club, off Ecclesall Road, Sheffield.
The bike ride routes are:
50 Mile Ride 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 be 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 Mile Ride For those who want a shorter but still hilly and picturesque bike ride through Burbage, Hathersage, and back under Stanage. Set off between 8am and 9am
The Friendship Walk follows a leisurely, safe route with a quiz for children, going through Endcliffe Park and up to Forge Dam. There is even a pop up cafe on route to spur everybody on! Set off 10am.
Registration Rates for the Bike Ride: individuals £20, concessions and students £7, children £5, children with sponsorship form £3
There is no registration fee for the Friendship Walk but we will be happy to accept donations from anybody who would like to make one on the day.
Sponsorship: We don’t ask for sponsorship but donations over and above the registration fee are welcome. Experience has shown us that children often get more involved if they are collecting sponsorship!
If you can join us to ride, register at eventbrite so we have a guide of numbers and pay your subs on the day!
If you aren’t able to attend but would still like to support you can use our Just Giving page here!
Registration and starting point for all rides is 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.
