Sheffield FridayNightRide

we have nothing to lose but our chains

2015/08/31 Sheffield Quartet

This ride was the daytime bank holiday Monday because we needed the daylight for the views we were going to see and we can pack in a daytime ride and an evening film and get you home in time for bed and work next day

Ride report: Sincere thanks, and much gratitude, to everyone of the 20 or so of us who came out on the Sheffield Quartet Ride – we got to all the sites and saw all the sights (some through the mist), a bit damp at times but not soaking or cold and it even brightened up by Wincobank and beyond. Pleasant stops at the Three Merry Lads, Redmires and the genuine 60s saloon bar to ourselves at The Forum, Sandstone Rd, Wincobank
