Look after the National Cycle Network in Sheffield - keeping it open and clear for use, developing new routes, generally promoting Active Travel in Sheffield


We will be helping out our good friend Simon Geller; Volunteer Co-ordinator for Sustrans in Sheffield. Simon does a fantastic job co-ordinating volunteers to help upkeep the National Cycle Network (NCN) in and around the city.

We will be help helping out with the huge task of making sure the network is safe to use for all who want to use it for active travel. Expect the following tasks:

  • Leaf cleaning
  • Litter picking
  • Cutting back
  • Weeding

Please, please, please in the darker evening bring your own head torch and if you have one, a floodlight as it makes the tasks so much more efficient. In addition, please bring your own gloves so we can get straight to work in an efficient and safe way. Thanks!

Options are available to run between 5km and 6km in total

Remember that we run to and from the task, so you'll only be running for half this distance in one go.

This is a standard GoodGym group run. If you can't run for more than 15mins without stopping or you're worried about any aspect of the session, contact us or see if there's a starter session coming up in your area.

There's space to change and leave bags and toilets. We're not planning to do anything purposefully dangerous, but GoodGym takes no responsibility for your safety during group runs, you participate at your own risk. Participants accept full responsibility for items stored at Showroom Cinema, and Showroom Cinema and GoodGym will not be held liable for any losses or damages.
