Cowshed Cafe - Sunday AMBER Ride

Sitwell CC Road Captain:

Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 8:30 am.

Ride description:

After last months aborted attempt due to our very own Monsoon Season, we try again to visit one of the popular Cafes of 2019!

Lots of familiar roads through Firbeck, Harworth, Tickhill, Rossington and Blaxton on the way out to The Cowshed at Sunnybank Gardens, near Hatfield. A great café – with meat, pancakes, ice cream…the lot! 

The return is via Finningley, Bawtry, Tickhill, Braithwell and Bramley – all the way back to the moist and loving embrace of The Sitwell Arms.

The total distance is 52 miles/ 83 km, with a total elevation gain of 1,800 feet / 550 metres.

The route can be downloaded here:

The Cafe stop will be at: The Cowshed café at Sunnybank Gardens & The Yorkshire Ice Cream Farm

The pace on this ride will be approx 13-15mph.


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.
