Festival of the Outdoors with Will4Adventure 2023

I have lived in Sheffield for more than 30 years, and Will4Adventure was first founded in 2003, yet this is the first time we will be taking part in the Sheffield Festival of the Outdoors! High time, I know – but here we are at last, and we’re very excited to be lending our own flavour of walks, rides & climbs from Sheffield for this fab festival.

FREE Guided Walking Weekend – Sheffield & the Peak District
Western Moors of Sheffield
4th/5th March 2023

Nature: This will be a super walk crossing the city boundary of Sheffield with the Peak District National Park. Expect rocky trails, super vistas spanning the Dark Peak, legendary man-eating bogs, and some lesser-known paths. This 22Km (14 mile) walk will link Bamford Edge, with Bamford Moor, Stanage Edge, Hallam Moors and finally Ughill Moors.

Sunday (optional): We will meet at 1000 outside the Grouse Inn before heading up to White Edge and returning along one of our favourite climbing venues – Froggatt Edge. Nothing too taxing – getting us back for around 1230.

Meet at: Cutthroat Bridge Car Park, Sheffield, S10 4QZ
Timings: 10am – 1230pm
Bring: come equipped for a day on the hill and especially come with your lunch

Guided Mountain Biking – Sheffield & the Peak District
Western Moors of Sheffield – Keeping it Blue
9 & 17th March 2023

Nature: This is the perfect introduction to mountain biking for novices with a great opportunity to sample some easy Peak District trails right on the doorstep of Sheffield. The ride will start by taking a quick look at people’s bikes and showing you how to check your bike over before we head out. The ride starts easy, allowing us to warm up a bit whilst gaining a little height, riding beneath Burbage Edge. From here we’ll then head to the technical trails at Ringinglow where we’ll do some basic skills sessions aimed at riders new to mountain biking, or who have never had any formal skills coaching before. From there we’ll enjoy the Houndkirk Trail and then a final flowy descent before returning to our cars at Longshaw.

Meeting location: National Trust car park, the Longshaw Estate, Sheffield S11 7TZ 
Timings: 10am – 1230pm
Bring: Some snacks, a drink, and your helmet!
Distance: 18Km & 271m of ascent
Led by: Will– MIAS L2 Mountain Bike Leader, and qualified Mountain Leader
Price per person:
£20

Private bookings can be taken to lead individuals and private groups on guided mountain biking rides from £120. Contact us with your preferred date(s) that suit you and the numbers and we’ll get back to you asap with all the details.

Guided Mountain Biking – Sheffield & the Peak District
Eastern Moors Tour – 20Km
24th March 2023

Nature: This is the perfect introduction to mountain biking for novices with a great opportunity to sample some easy Peak District trails right on the doorstep of Sheffield. This route isn’t overly technical but you do need to have some trail fitness to cope with some of the rocky terrain that you will encounter along the way. The day will start by taking a quick look at people’s bikes and showing you how to check your bike over before we head out. The ride then starts easy, though very quickly we have an opportunity to take a slightly faster, technical and rocky descent. Alas, it’s over before its begun, and on we ride heading south, passing through idyllic moorland on some super-easy trails courtesy of the Barbrook Valley. Eventually we come to Wellington’s Monument for a snack and a wet, before we head back along the glorious Froggatt Edge and back to our cars at Longshaw.

Meeting location: National Trust car park, the Longshaw Estate, Sheffield S11 7TZ 
Timings: 10am – 1pm
