Gray Rooms - Saturday GREEN Ride

Posted on behalf of Sitwell Cycling Club


Sitwell CC Road Captain:

Sarah Morton.

Leaving from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street at 9.00. 

Ride description:

Yes we start with the short Guilthwaite climb but that's the only climb on this route. A lovely flat route heading out via the Straight Mile to Anston so we can ride over the flat pleasant lanes of Woodsetts, Gildingwells, Letwell and on to Oldcoates.

Here we meander via Styrup and Harworth onto Bawtry where we'll stop for cake and coffee at Gray Rooms in Bawtry approximately 20 miles into the route.

After the Cafe stop we'll head to Tickhill, along Apy Hill Lane to Micklebring, then usual route to Ravenfield, Bramley and then back to base HQ down Bawtry road. 

Total distance is 35 miles / 56 km with total elevation gain 1,643 feet / 500 metres.

The route can be downloaded here:

The cafe stop is the Gray Rooms in Bawtry.

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


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.
