2013/05/17 Grow Your Own: Hazlehurst Coop

Ride report to follow

“Grow your Own” a ride to to Hazlehurst Coop, Transition Sheffield
Fri May 17 2013
Start: 6.30 Barkers Pool

The ride to Hazelhurst is titled Grow your Own and the plan is to visit sites of grow your own schemes and pass by some allotments on our way to and from Hazelhurst Coop.  Many of these are ‘covered’ by the umbrella of Transition Sheffield.  We should get up there by 8.15
At Hazlehurst we will have some (veggie) soup and the food you bring.  Scheme workers and volunteers will talk about what  they do and how it all works  – you may even want to know about volunteering yourself.
This ride will be our 60th ride so we hit our Diamond Jubilee.  A celebratory event where we “break bread and drink together” will be communal (almost sacramental!) and certainly fun. 
All details on how to sign up to the ride and show what you may bring then go to Next Sheffield FNR
All welcome – if you’ve never been on one of these before, no worries, just join in and … please, please sign up that you’re going and bringing a dish

The route is all on roads and here is a map with elevation profile 
Climbing up via the Norfolk Park/Arbourthorne/Gleadless/Hemsworth route and returning on the Heeley/Meersbrook/Norton.

Cost: You may be asked to collectively cover the cost of the soup etc so pls bring some change and pay a donation for any draught beer you have – Ta
People are doing it for themselves!
