AL4 9DD

A fairly easy going green ride starting at Sandridge. We ride to Childwickbury then over to Nomansland via Ayres End Lane. At this point we can choose which way to go but still end up on the way to Coleman Green Lane. We then do a climb which isn't too brutal but just goes on a while. If you have to get off and walk this is absolutely fine you will not be left behind. We then ride around Symondshyde woods and go on our way to Osprey for refreshments. The last leg takes us back down into Sandridge, There are a couple of short sections on main roads which can be fast but you will be guided if you are nervous.

Sandridge to Osprey approximately 13miles

Mostly quiet country lanes with a couple of sections of main roads

We will start at Sandridge village hall and ride to Childwickbury to see if the bluebells are there. We will then ride to Nomansland and over the main road to get towards Symondshyde and eventually Osprey for a well deserved rest and refreshment stop.

Please wear a helmet for the ride, check your tyres are pumped up and bring a spare inner tube and pump. It's always advisable to bring along a drink and money for the refreshment stop. Please do not turn up if you have any COVID symptoms but cancel your place and let me know so we are not waiting for you.

We never leave anyone behind
