Devil's Elbow Trail Day

Type:Cycle Event

Shorts Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S17 3AH
Devil's Elbow Trail Day


The Devil’s Elbow bridleway has the classic combination of roots, rock and woodland that make the periphery of our city so inviting to mountain bikers. On foot, or hoof its natural history and landscape reveals itself even more.

Local MTB group Ride Sheffield have been maintaining the bridleways on Blacka and surrounding hills for the past 10 years- supporting the work of Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust and Sheffield Rights of Way team, making them better for all users.

After Sheffield was hit with some bad storms last year, the group are looking at some big work on this multi-user bridleway, to make the damaged sections safer and easier to both ride and walk. It’s a big job, so they’re collaborating with other user groups to share the load and asking anyone who uses the trail to help out.

The Trail Day briefing will be at 9.30am, but you’re welcome to pop along throughout the day as long as you register with the event lead to be briefed first. 

Meet at Shorts Lane by the stables. Parking is also on Shorts Lane.

Equipment and refreshments will be provided, but please make sure you dress appropriately for some outdoor graft- it will be muddy!
