Club Rides - Saturday Saunter

These rides are great as an introduction to club riding due to there short nature and relaxed pace.

Saturday Saunter rides depart from the corner of Turner Lane and High Street, Whiston at 9:00am prompt.

Saturday club rides are much shorter than a Sunday ride, we will be on the road for around 2 and a half hours riding at ~13mph.

Including the café stop we're usually back in the village for around 12:30pm.

Please take time to read our Risk Assessment on Road Riding.

Ride description:

We are off to Dronfield this morning. Leaving HQ we will head to Ridgeway via Swallownest, Beighton and onto Mosborough. Once we have descended into Ridgeway we climb up to Marsh Lane, Coal Aston and through Dronfield onto Owler Bar. We then descend toward Barlow but making a left turn towards Millthorpe and back into Dronfield for a well-deserved breakfast at the Tearoom in Cliffe Park. Be careful not to fill up as we have a few lumps and bumps on our way home. Leaving Dronfield behind we almost immediately tackle Crow Lane towards Apperknowle that out of the way we descend, back into Ridgeway and climb back up to Mosborough and head towards Spinkhill, Harthill and familiar roads back to base. Maybe time for a pint in the Sitwell Arms to reflect on a cracking day in the saddle.
