Everyone is most welcome to participate during probably the friendliest Critical Mass Group’s easy-paced ride in the world. Especially when we are celebrating joining Love Sheffield’s 1,000 Day Event, which is about 1,000 people (or more), like you, sharing amazing days during events that should benefit the community.

Whatever the weather, we should cycle at an easy-going pace along the otter-ly amazing, flat, free and fun Five Weirs Walk & Cycle Route to Meadowhall. Really! Otters have been photographed and filmed swimming in the sheltered waters of the River Don adjacent to the amazing cycle route. Therefore, we should visit the otter-ly amazing bridge that was erected by Newton Chambers Ironworks, and then enjoy the bird’s eye view of the fish pass in the River Don.

Amazingly, as we travel through the Lower Don Valley, we should see wildlife photographers, who have state-of-the-art cameras with lenses fitted that are as long as our crossbars.

Usually, we visit the English Institute of Sport, as their kind-hearted staff grant our group permission to visit the Hall of Fame. Also, we should enjoy a world-class comfort break in their world-class facilities.

After you have been fed and watered, you should enjoy travelling along the new cycle routes round the Olympic Legacy Park, before returning to Victoria Quays.

Please be aware that you participate at your own risk. And please bring a spare tube and tother essentials, such as money to purchase those very reasonably priced drinks and snacks at the English Institute of Sport.

Please use the link below to the event at our Facebook page, and then you can keep up-to-date with any conversations.
