Saturday 'Fossils' Rides


Silkstone Church 9:30am Saturday Mornings

Our Sunday team rides have established a reputation for their speed and ability to leave participants battered and broken. There have been times when a glance under your arm revealed groups and echelons scattered along the road as riders crack one by one. In the aftermath of some of our more ‘grippy’ rides our Facebook page has been covered with comments such as, “Got home, but only just”, “…the drive felt like Alp D’Huez” and, of course, “Same time next week?”.
After many meetings, conference calls and much discussion the powers that be within Team CF have finally realised that not everyone wants to end their ride crawling to the door like the poor soul above. This has led to us offering the option of the Saturday ‘Silkstone Fossils Run’. Meeting at 9:30 at Silkstone Church the ride offers the perfect opportunity to come along for a steady social spin. As with all things at Team CF there are rules;

·         No café racers

·         No-one gets left behind

·         We go as fast as the slowest rider

·         Finally, Team CF’s standard rule, “No morons”(unless they’re our morons, obviously)

The ride takes in one of three routes, Emley loop, Winscar Resevoir and the Strines. The routes take in some of the hills and countryside around our home town of Barnsley and provide ideal territory for an enjoyable social ride.

If you’ve not been on a ‘club run’ before or are just considering starting again why not join us?

You never know, you might even graduate to the Sunday rides and find yourself crawling in the front door and collapsing on the sofa!
