Here in Sheffield we are fortunate enough to have some of Britain’s most spectacular roads and scenery right on our door step.

We Ride

  • Wednesday at 1:30pm from the Arts Tower
  • Saturdays at 9am from the Arts Tower
  • Additionally our members also often organise extra rides on the club Facebook group, which can be anything from a quick blast after lectures to a 100+ mile Sunday training ride.

As with all our rides, double check on the Road Facebook group for exact details.

The club caters for all abilities and genders, ranging from those brand new to road cycling through to seasoned semi-professional riders.

Local Riding

The Peak District

The majority of club rides take place in the Peak, with great views, big climbs and long descents there are few better places to ride in UK. The city of Sheffield sits right on the edge of this national park and it takes less than fifteen minutes to get out into the countryside. There are famous climbs such as Winnats Pass and Curbar Edge (home of the BUCS Hill Climbs) within easy riding distance as well large parts of the route for Stage 2 of the 2014 Tour de France.

Flatter riding out east

If you fancy something a bit different there’s plenty of flat or rolling countryside to be found on the east side of Sheffield, and some quality chain gangs with even the odd pro rider attending.

 

UoSSC Abroad
