Hi people.

I'm looking for more riding buddies around Sheffield as its always more enjoyable riding in a group of 2, 3 or 4 than on your own. I tend to get out for one big ride a week, usually 30km+ and mostly stick to the peak district and occassionally organise trips to trail centres.

I've got a couple of mates I ride with but with everyone having busy schedules it would be handy to know a lot more bikers who I could organise rides with.

Anybody from my neck of the woods interested feel free to ge in touch.

Cheers, Phil

    I'm in sheffield, and have a shift rota where I'm of work for 2 weeks at a time - so plenty of time to ride. Send me some contact no.s on a PM and we'll see if we can tie up. Some mates do weekly night rides throughout the year mostly on a Thursday night. I've also started to go along with the rides going from Biketree cycle shop in Dore on a Wed night the last one i went on was excellent.

    PS should be back in sheffield sometime 27/07, based Millhouses.

    Im in Sheffield also.

    Usually go out for longer rides at weekend but often get in a evening ride or 2 around 20km during the week. Also I quite often have random weekdays off so try and get out for a ride then too.

    Im now away until sunday but if you fancy a ride in the peaks or around Sheffield next week let me know.

    Hi guys,
    I ride with the slow rides group usually once per month (see post for "Hooge" ride in the peaks this Saturday).
    Some of us are from Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster and do the peaks, langsett, lee quarry etc... most weekends inbetween the group rides and a few evening rides too.

    Feel free to post or PM me if you fancy a trip out sometime

    ditto, be careful with that Biketree lot though :wink: I've only just got back riding after a little tumble on my first and only ride (so far) with them. I did what has become known as "a Brad"

    Nice bunch though, definately recommend riding with them if you get chance.
    How fast? Oh...too fast.

    Interesting link 'binty just signed up. How about looking at the Bike Tree's Wed evening rides they are excellent and get a good turn out. Mixed group- ability and sex.
