    New Tandem

    Many thanks to Ruth and Julian for generously donating their under-used tandem to our club.
    Not only great fun but also motivates non-riders by giving them a taste of what cycling is all about.
    It will be well used here!

    Jenny rides a bike!

    Jenny has been improving her balance with scoot and glide for weeks, first with no pedals, then with one then with two. Today she did the pedalling bit as well! Fantastic! Click here for a video.

    A ride on the Monsal Trai!

    To round our year off we chose the Monsal Trail for a club ride away from the track. We rode from Hassop to the Monsal Head viaduct and then back for a packed lunch. Many thanks to Duncan for acting as our Ride Leader for this our very first outing. See the gallery for photos.

    A big "thank you" to Rob Mace from British Cycling who came down to the track and gave a free training session called 'Ready Set Ride' . He talked with parents, giving some pointers about learning to ride, and then demonstrated a a couple of fun exercises with our would-be cyclists. See the gallery for some photos! .

    20th May 2018

    The Ride for Eric on 20th May was unsurprisingly full of cyclists. There was a 5km ride around the track and and a 25km ride that took to the streets before returning for a final lap of victory. There were a number of stalls including Yorkshire Rose Cycle Club , Recycle Bikes, massage for aching muscles after the rides and a stationary bike connected to a liquidiser for making milkshakes and smoothies. We were made to feel welcome, did a few laps with the trikes and tag-along, and swapped leaflets with people. One little girl made good progress using one of our balance bikes. Nice convivial atmosphere and we did a lot of chatting.

    11th May 2018

    Top man this week has to be Jordan, who tried one of our balance bikes and after a few minutes was scooting and gliding like a pro.

    This week we also became affiliated to British Cycling . This gives us access to help and advice for our club and includes public liability insurance.

    4th May 2018

    This week we took delivery of new equipment including 3 beautiful trikes, 2 bikes, 2 balance bikes, helmets and other gear all courtesy of funding from Sheffield City Council and Within Reach . We tried them out at our Friday session.

    Many thanks to Evans Cycles for helpful advice, putting the order together and delivering the kit.

    New trikes and sunshine!
