Cycle Chic Sundays 17th June 2012 - Revised Map

cyclechicsundayssheffield:


View sheffield cycle chic ride 2012 in a larger map

A slightly revised route.

The first stage has been made shorter and only has a very small amount of on road riding to make it suitable for very young kids.

The second stage has omitted Frog Walk, which is too narrow for a large group and goes through the Cemetery instead and the last part of the Moor has been omitted to make the approach to the Peace Gardens easier.

The third stage has been shortened to avoid Ecclesall Road, finishing at the Botanical Gardens. (If anyone needs to get back to Endcliffe Park it’s not too far away).

Total Route is just over 5 1/2 miles

Planning Cycle Chic Sundays

Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on the blog, but its been all go in the background.

Last weekend I attended the Policy Bash of the GB Cycling Embassy in London and there are some exciting ideas and developments soon to be announced. If you’re not already involved do take a look. At the moment membership is free and it would be great if you have any ideas to contribute.

Alternatively, if shopping is more your thing, then there are some lovely cycle chic accessories available in the shop here or here

We are busy planning some more Cycle Chic Sundays rides. If you have any ideas of places to visit around Sheffield or good places to stop please post in the comments.

As a starter someone has already suggested a “Cake Run” so suggestions of great places for cake (and opening hours) would be particularly welcome. So far Fancie is on our list

Inspired by Copenhagen Cycle Chic™ - The Original Cycle Chic™, 
the goal of Cycle Chic™ Sundays is to enjoy time with friends & make new ones while riding bikes & looking chic!

Cycle in a nice T-shirts, jackets, trousers, skirts, suits, tweeds, casuals, scarves, nice hats - some kind of sartorial statement.

Leave the lycra, hi-viz or even helmets at home and dress to kill.

Clean up and/or pimp your bike and just get it on with other cyclists who want to cycle in style http://sheffieldcyclechic.tumblr.com/ orhttp://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/

Come on this if you like to cycle and want to join in a display of cool and companionable cycling; don’t come on this if you want to get the miles in. 

Please pledge to respect The Cycle Chic Manifesto:

- I choose to cycle chic and, at every opportunity, I will choose Style over Speed.

- I embrace my responsibility to contribute visually to a more aesthetically pleasing urban landscape.

- I am aware that my mere presence in said urban landscape will inspire others without me being labelled as a ‘bicycle activist’.

- I will ride with grace, elegance and dignity.

- I will choose a bicycle that reflects my personality and style.

- I will, however, regard my bicycle as transport and as a mere supplement to my own personal style. Allowing my bike to upstage me is unacceptable.

- I will endeavour to ensure that the total value of my clothes always exceeds that of my bicycle.

- I will accessorise in accordance with the standards of a bicycle culture and acquire, where possible, a chain guard, kickstand, skirt guard, fenders, bell and basket. 

- I will respect the traffic laws.

- I will refrain from wearing and owning any form of ‘cycle wear’. The only exception being a bicycle helmet - if I choose to exercise my freedom of personal choice and wear one. (and make an effort to understand the science of helmets
