Starting point




South Yorkshire
S7 2QQ

We begin with a steepish climb out of Millhouses and up to Whirlow, before a longer but more gentle incline up to Stony Ridge Road. After dropping down to the Fox House pub, we turn left onto Owler Bar Road and across the beautiful moorland at Longshaw, before starting a nice descent back into Sheffield from Owler Bar.

Route rating

0 stars (0) Reviews

This is a fabulous route from South Sheffield through the Longshaw estate, before looping back to the start. There is lots of climbing to do, but your efforts are rewarded by spectacular views across the Peak District and Longshaw, with the chance of seeing some deer too!

These roads often have fast moving traffic and cars will overtake us quickly. Please ensure you are comfortable riding on fast roads before signing up.

There are no cafe stops on this ride, but we can stop for a quick drink/breather on Owler Bar Road, and will have coffee and cake at Millhouses Park Cafe at the end.

Please bring a drink with you and some money for the cafe. Please ensure your bike is in good working order and bring a spare inner tube, multi-tool/spanner and a pump with you. We’ll help you if you get a puncture, but you need to carry the right tube for your bike. :-) Helmets are advised but not compulsory. Laura x
