It's nearly a year ago since the team road.cc crew headed up to Sheffield for a rideout and we must have been well behaved because Decathlon have invited us back for another go.
Being situated just a few miles from the Peak District the area lends itself well to some challenging riding and excellent scenery so the guys at Decathlon are going to come up with a couple of routes. The usual 25-30 miles for the shorter and 35-40 miles for the longer version and if you haven't been on one of our rideouts before then the best way to describe them is a friendly club run basically.
We'll have ride leaders and back markers for each ride and everyone is looked after and kept within the group.
The plan is to meet up at Decathlon by 9am for coffee on Sunday 2nd October with a quick rider briefing to follow at 9:30. We'll then depart on whichever route you choose before returning for more refreshments and socialising. Every rider that turns up will also receive a goody bag from Decathlon.
Then get your name down here, we have limited spaces so don't hang about and it's all completely free!!
With 20 years of road cycling and over 150,000 miles in his legs it's safe to say Stu is happiest when on the bike whatever the weather. Since writing his first review for road.cc back in 2009 he has also had a career in engineering including 3D-CAD design and product development, so has a real passion for all of the latest technology coming through in the industry but is also a sucker for a classic steel frame, skinny tyres, rim brakes and a damn good paintjob.
His fascination with gravel bikes is getting out of control too!
