Upcoming rides

Hope via Winnats Pass

Sitwell CC Road Captain – Andy Laidler

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

Ride description:
The stats for this one are approx 90km and 1700m of elevation. It is a hilly one out into the Peaks and to ascend the focal point of this ride Winnats Pass in Castleton. An 8/10 in Simon Warrens book of climbs it will test us all but nothing we all can't get up and bag some big worthy points. We head over to Castleton through Sheffield and then up Ringinglow where we will then drop down and along the valley through Hope. After our ascent of Winnats we will then come down Mam Tor and around Edale where we will stop off at the Adventure Cafe in Hope. The rest of our route back to HQ will be a different route back up to the top of Ringinglow before another fast descent down into Sheffield out of the Peaks.

As per usual all are welcome and no one will get left behind.

Hathersage & Beeley

Sitwell CC Road Captain - Jonny Haynes

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

This is the majority of the route we did with Dean Downing and the VOID Clothing crew last year. It has a couple of cracking climbs, one up to Ringinglow and the other at Beeley. But they also have some awesome downhills, nice big flowing descents.

Ride discription:
60 miles, relatively flat considering we're out in the peaks. We've got a long draggy climb up to the top of Ringinglow and the Beeley Moor climb but other than that it's plain saialing. We've got a great long flowy descent down into Millhouses on the way back.

The route can be downloaded here: strava.com/routes/6161779

The pace on this ride will be about 13-14mph.

The café stop will be the highly rated Old Smithy at Beeley.
