SUSTRANS - National Cycle Network (NCN)
Improving local access to walking and cycling routes
Please note that this group run has been cancelled.
Sustrans are the charity that's making it easier for people to walk and cycle.
The National Cycle Network (NCN) is a network of signed paths and routes for walking, cycling and exploring outdoors, with SUSTRANS being the custodian of the Network. At 16,575 miles it spans the UK, connecting people and places and providing traffic-free spaces for everyone to enjoy.
Sheffield has approximately 17 miles of National Cycle Network and growing, much of which is also part of the Trans -Pennine Trail. The Network enters Sheffield from the north at Grenoside and leave the city to the East at Rother Valley Park and to the West at Ringinglow. No-one would claim that the Network is perfect in the Sheffield area and it's in much need of looking after and regular maintenance. It passes through some of the most deprived areas in the city and problems include general litter, broken glass, fly-tipping, vandalism, and overgrowth.
Good Gym can help make the network usable and attractive to prospective users by helping with litter-picking and brushing back, vegetation management, cleaning signs and a general sprucing-up. LItter-pickers, brooms and shovels etc will be provided to give this area a bit of a clean. If you have your own gardening gloves, please bring them with you, thanks! If it's Likely to be dark on the run, please bring a head torch with you.
