A Better Rob Route - Sunday GREEN Ride

A Better Rob Route - Sunday GREEN Ride

Posted on behalf of Sitwell Cycling Club


Sitwell CC Road Captain:

Jamie Hardy

Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 9am.

Ride description:

Based on one of Rob's routes when he got a bit giddy doing a climbing challenge one January...

I have changed the start so we get a bit of a warm-up through Treeton before the first big climb which is from Aughton crossroads up too Ulley. 

Not too hilly but two good climbs, Ulley lane and bib lane which we will take slow and you can all wait for me at the top, as it would be rude to drop the ride leader. 

The only other change to Rob's route is to keep us off the main road from Maltby to Hellaby instead we will drop back through Carr

The cafe stop will be Leger Lakes, club favourite we did on the Christmas ride and where if you sit outside sometimes you have to fight off a few cats or chickens, so far the llama has behaved.

Total distance is 29 miles / 46 km with total elevation gain 1,838 feet / 560 metre.

The route can be downloaded here: https://www.strava.com/routes/17405215.

The cafe stop will be Leger Lakes at Firbeck.

The pace on this ride will be approx 12-14mph.


What do you need?

Helmets are required, and carry at least one spare inner tube plus a basic tool kit comprising a minimum of:


Tyre levers

Chain tool (chain breaker)

One inner tube (preferably two)

Spanner (with multiple size holes, helps with brake/pedal situations)

Spoke key

Mini pump (or gas canisters and valve)

An emergency tenner (useful at the cafe stop if nothing else)

In the Winter months riders should have full length mudguards and preferably a mudguard flap - it helps to keep our kit clean!

Our no-drop policy applies to every club ride so there will usually be a tool for the job amongst us somewhere and hands on deck to help out. However, it's still wise to carry a toolkit of your own in case you have to head back home alone for any reason.

Rules of the road

Everyone on a club ride needs to take responsibility for the safety of others as well as for themselves. In order to ensure our rides remain safe as well as good fun, we ask all our members to follow some basic rules and standards of cycling etiquette.

If you're considering just doing part of this ride we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the area and/or bring a map of some kind. However, if you ask the Road Captain they will help as much as possible in directing you.

Please let someone know if you leave the ride/group as we don't want to waste time searching for you if nothing is wrong. 

If you are struggling in anyway don't suffer in silence, please let the Road Captain know so they can help if possible.


This is an opportunity to meet up for a ride with others and socialise. Although someone will be determining the route you are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
