Strava Smashing September: Greno

Another month, another Segment to be Smashed! This time we are heading over to the other side of the city and to the Steel City race track, built specifically for this years race by Ride Sheffield and BikeTrack.Org. However, its not just the mini DH route, you’ll also need to pedal. The loop starts just above the bomb hole on the ride back up to to the top of the track. Then dive in and smash the DH like Peaty was chasing you down. The segment finishes before the bottom so you don’t need to cross the bridleway before the bomb hole.

You’ve got until the 30th September and can have as many goes as you like, only your fastest will count. Ride Sheffield have recently managed to find more cash for trail development so Bike Track have been up and sorting out the parts of the track that needed it.

Be aware, on Saturday 15th September there is a dig day going on to continue improvements to the track. Do not ride that day, go a give a hand instead!

All we ask is that you ride responsibly. Be respectful to other trail users, the trail itself and yourself. Don’t piss anyone off, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Simple.  There’s not prizes, only bragging rights. You race completely at your own risk. We take absolutely no responsiblity for your actions or any injuries sustained.

Go have fun on a great trail!

Peaty’s Steel City Downhill!!

Finally we can let the cat out of the bag….

After a month of some serious hard work, the inaugural Steel City Downhill Mini Downhill event is ready for the masses.

Sheffield’s own multiple world cup downhill champion Steve Peat is helping to organize the cities first official Mini Downhill race, the inaugural Steel City series event. In aid of the Greno Woods appeal a Mini DH will be held in Grenoside woods on the 5th March. Open to all from 10 years up, the race track is fast and flowing which would suit mid travel trail bikes and riders who can carry speed.

Professional timing will be provided by MIJ Events with prizes from Royal, Sram, 18 bikes, The Bike Tree, O’Neal, Polaris, Five Ten, Cotic, Chromag, Smartwool, Monster, Arcteryx and many more. The event will be filmed and broadcast by who will also sponsor an amateur video and photo contest.
