- Make my commute more fun! (Sheffield)
Depends…There is a much faster, nicer route, mainly off-roads…but dont take an expensive bike – its Manor Dahling 😉
When you leave work (AMP?) pick up the bridleway opposite on the left as you head back up the hill towards the roundabouts under the parkway (opposite the Sanderson(?) office). This will take you off-road nearly to Asda on the Parkway. Keep alongside the Parkway all the way – lots of in/out bits with some woodsy bits, some steps etc. Mind the burnt out cars, dumped fridges and kids skiving school for a tab in the woods…It chucks you out on Manor Way, where you can do a left turn uphill for 10m or so, right down Maltravers Road and you are at the incinerator – I would then do a left along Bernard Street and Talbot Street (you would now be behind the station with nice view, and some cheekyness in the Plague Park if wanted), and onto the inner ring road at Sheaf SquarePosted 9 years agojimmySubscriber
In the city centre? Nope. You could head from Ecclesall over Crooks and take in the BMX track followed by a bit of urban down to Rivelin Valley, like;
You can see where the BMX track is, after that you need to find the steps and alley ways down.
As for real trails…Posted 9 years agojackthedogMember
You could pick the canal towpath up at Valley Centertainment and that’ll take you into the canal basin/Victoria Quays at Park Square Roundabout.
Or to make things a touch longer you could turn the other way along Shepcote lane and pick the canal up at Tinsley Viaduct.Posted 9 years ago
Cheers for the help fellas! Yeah I’m coming from the AMP. I do like the sound of Matts route, although the reason i was coming through attercliffe was to avoid any run-ins through Manor (mumsie tells me to take the safe way home from school :wink:).
My bright orange Orange might attract a few magpies riding along there?Posted 9 years ago
I’m bored of my current route through sheffield, its entirely on road and fairly flat. Now the weather is getting better I’d like to extend my ride home.
The current route is this
Does anyone know of some sneaky trails in the area?Posted 9 years ago
