Friday 29 June 2018. The Dragon of Wantley, Ride Leader: Simon (SFNR’s 10th birthday is on 20 June but this is the first day we can go! and it will be ride #97)
There’s enough at this Dragon of Wantley URL to make a bike ride – we are going a long way.

Friday 13 July 2018. Sheffield Painting,s Ride Leader: Mick (ride #98)
A while ago we did a ride to the locations of the Sheffield Quartet. We will go to three of them again (Park Hill, Crookes, and Mayfield Valley) and pick up on other locations of paintings in this gallery in Sheffield PLUS any artists (Dave Aikenhead?) want to contribute a thumbnail of a painting of Sheffield so we can go to the location and hear, why paint there?

Friday 24 August 2018. Sheffield Boundaries, Ride Leader: Simon (ride #99)
Sheffield has always been a city on the boundaries, for iron age tribes the Brigante & Corieltauvi, saxons in Mercia and danes in Northumbria, and folk in Yorkshire and Derbyshire, it’s why so many places in SHF have ‘..shire..’ as part of their name – we are going to cycle to some of these boundaries

Friday 7 September 2018. Hidden Hillsborough (Reprise), Ride Leader: Mick (ride #100 and belated 10th SFNR birthday celebrations after the ride)
Revising and adapting a ride from 2009, and supporting Burton St Foundation’s contribution to 2018 Heritage Open Days we will explore Hillsborough and its surrounds before heading back to town to party
The ride will start at Burton Street Foundation and tootle around and in and out of Hillsborough finally heading back to the city centre for an after ride party @ The Dorothy Pax more details soon.
