/ Sheffield Outdoor Economy Survey
Not sure if the BMC or Ride Sheffield count as clubs, but I put them down !
And the question "Which parts of the city do you cycle in" was tricky as it would be easier to say where I don't cycle - and that list is diminishing as tonight I'm off to Wincobank and Cote de Jenkin Hill !
Hi John, great work, you are my favourite activist!
I wondered if it would be useful to point out to people that lots of the Eastern Moors are in Sheffield City Council's jurastriction. Burbage Valley, Higgar, Millstone, Strines Moor, almost everything East of Stanage. Burbage is actually owned by the City (who bought it to flood into a reservoir in 1928!).
Or is this intended to focus more on parks and city usage?
Good point about the Eastern moors - plus the valleys West of Sheffield; Porter Brook, Rivelin, Loxley
And further North again - the Ewden Valley, the Howden, Langsett, Broomhead and Bradfield Moors. :o)
Also, outside the Peak park, Wharncliffe crag and Greno Wood.
(But not Wharncliffe Wood - that's Barnsley.)
Thanks all. In answer to Dan, the Sheffield/Peak link is really important. Feel free to bang on about it! For my money, both SCC and the Peak National Park Authority massively underestimate just how symbiotic a relationship they have. Best we make it blindingly obvious!
