Ride report: We had a fabulous time last Friday with 40 starting the yoga ride and 30 ending up for a taught yoga session targeted at cyclists at the Sheffield Yoga Centre
Ali prepared a high quality handout for all the riders and as soon as I have worked out how to get it from pdf into another format I will put it up.

7 Nov 2014
​Start: Public Entrance to Ponds Forge 6.30 pm​ SHARP

​Ride Leaders: Ali Coldwell and Bridget Strong​

​Theme:​So many Yoga centres popping up in we start in the city centre at a generic gym, i.e. Ponds Forge which may be most people’s conception/experience of the generic term yoga and then we are going to cycle to places where different forms of yoga takes place and learn about stuff like Ashtanga, Buddhist philosopy/8 limbs of yoga and finish at the Sheffield Yoga Centre. There we get a cup of tea and a 30 minute taught Iyengar lesson specifically designed for cyclists, getting everyone doing a simplified version of Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (google it ha! ha!)

​Cost: The ride is free, the taught session is £3.99 (tea, mats, space and teacher provided)​. You can book a place on Eventbrite (preferred by us so we can plan) or you may pay on the night
​Limited to 40 places you can book here

Its 8.5 miles but a lovely ride round town (and round the “muesli belt”!) Ali and I did a recce last night and it works well

​Finish: At the Sheffield Yoga Centre and then to a hostelry of our/your choice – me? I’m going to the Gardeners Rest in Neepsend​, they have been good friends to us fridaynightriders, and they have good music and a liberal interpretation of opening hours.
