And i guess it will go out into the peaks, I'm thinking of rides with a good amount of riders, not just half a dozen.
The time has to be right.
Welcome to Retrobike, are you looking for competitive rides or social rides ?
We have well established area groups that organise monthly off road rides as well as National events, there are also the new National Road ride events but all of these are social rides.
Have a look here:- viewtopic.php?f=5&t=236387
for the National events
Here for more local rides
North East, North and West Yorkshire :- viewforum.php?f=31
And here Lincolnshire, East & South Yorkshire :- viewforum.php?f=51
And here North Wales & North west :- viewforum.php?f=30
Sheffield is pretty much central to all the above groups so you should have a good choice of when and where you could ride.
The National events normally attract more riders than the regional but we have had up to 50 riders on the Nationals.
We're a friendly bunch and every one is made to feel welcome, there's normally a pub/cafe lunch as well.
Hope this helps Kaya
