Ride description:


Double helpings of Bib Lane I hear you say? 


Nice and punchy we’ll head out over Ulley to begin with we’ll look for quiet roads over to Brookhouse where we’ll do our first ascent of Bib Lane. Scooting round Carr and Slade Hooten out onto a brief visit of the A634 we’ll take on the climb of Kings Wood Lane. A little jaunt up Eastfield Lane to where we’ll stop at the infamous Leger Lakes. After digesting our food we’ll drop down to Brookhouse where we’ll do the second ascent of Bib Lane, this time heading through Maltby to Braithwell. Sticking to well-trodden, quiet roads. A quick blast through Bramley and Kingsforth Lane, we’ll return to base down Royds Moor. 


Total distance is 30 mile / 48 km with total elevation gain 2,221 ft / 677 metres.

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

Multi-tool
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.

Disclaimer
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.
