Club Rides - Sunday Café Run

Sunday Café Runs almost always depart from the corner of Turner Lane and High Street, Whiston at 9.00am prompt unless we're doing something a bit special. Check the upcoming events below for the meet time.

If you come along on a Sunday Café Run, we will be on the road, riding for about 4 hours covering around 50 miles at about 13-14mph with a café stop.

Including the café stop we're usually back in the village for around 1pm.

We always have a planned route for a Sunday ride and they can be found below.

Peasetease

Sitwell CC Ride Leaders:
Andy Laidler
Darren Hibberd

Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 8am

A hilly ride that doesn't go that far from HQ.

Ride Description:
A nice hilly route but with nothing too leg ripping for anyone. But enough to keep the blood pumping as the winter starts drawing to an end. We even skirt around the near vertical in places Pea Royd Lane (Peasetease) and go up the much kinder Green Moor Road. This is all just before the café stop within Fox Valley (Samuels or Central Bean). Having worked our way over to our destination from HQ up through Chapeltown, Howbrook, Pilley and Wortley our journey home will be up out of Stocksbridge via Finkle Street and along Woodhead Road before climbing up into Wentworth and then lastly covering the local climb at Ravenfield and Brecks Lane.

This ride is all nicely wrapped up at around 78km and 1566m elevation.

You can get/view the route here: strava.com/routes/11485593

Don't let the bells end!

This ride leaves from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street, Whiston at 9am.

Ho ho ho!

Fancy dress will NOT be optional. The more outrageous (whilst staying Christmas themed) the better. Think Santa suits. Elf costumes. A Christmas tree with working lights. Yule log? Is that possible?

It'd be great if we could get a full club outing.

We'll do about 30 miles on reletively quiet roads, no café stop, but we'll be back in plenty of time for the Club's Christmas Party. :-D

Ride discription:
As flat as it can be for around here. strava.com/routes/7142678

The pace on this ride will be slower than usual.
