As the Bikebus is taking a break until April it’s a good time to look back on our first year.
Thanks to everybody who turned up for the rides, it was really good fun and I feel really lucky to have spent the time with such interesting and friendly people. Some days we only had one person come along but the bus will run as long as somebody wants it.
Having started with quite a vague idea where the project might go, quite a few things crystallised during the year. Continue reading
Saturday’s ride was a great success for the small and friendly band that came along. It exceeded my expectations, so I thought we might fit another opportunity in this week for anybody who couldn’t come on Saturday.
So if you are interested please go to this Doodle and click on the dates that are possible for you, if there’s enough interest I’ll set up a day/time and let you know.

After Christmas the Bikebus will be taking a break until the spring so please join us for our Christmas Shopping Special This Saturday, 14 December
We’ll be exploring some off-beat present options and interesting places to shop, and of course we’ll have a festive cafe stop. Please use our magic message method HERE to tell the driver if you are coming.
As usual we’ll start at Nether Edge Crossroads at 10am and this time I’m allowing three hours rather than the usual two, so we’ll have time to explore some of the shops along the route.
If you can’t come, have a good time this Christmas and New Year and keep cycling.
The next bus runs at 10am on Saturday 7th December.
Start as usual at Nether Edge Crossroads. We’ll be following Route 1, into the City Centre. Cafe Stop at Harland Cafe
And the Christmas Shopping Special will run on Saturday 14 December
Sheffield, like many cities and towns, has an active cycle campaign group. Cycle Sheffield
It does a great deal of nuts and bolts work to help improve conditions for cyclists, as well as campaigning for longer term improvements. Recently we’ve seen quite a change in the attitude of the City Council, heavily influenced by some effective work by Cycle Sheffield members. Continue reading
Just for a change, as we might have one or two riders who have ridden this route before, we are riding the “Outside the Ring Road” route in the reverse direction. This is partly so we can finish up at the Hagglers Corner cafe. Harland Cafe have done us proud on these rides and we’ll be back there soon but it feels like time for a change. Continue reading
