Streetley On Thames Youth Hostel Tour

There are a few places available for Sheffield CTC members to join our friends from Chesterfield Spire at excellent value at an Oxfordshire Youth Hostel. We have received the following invitation from Tony Adams.

In 2017, I did a short cycle tour of the South Downs staying at Oxford and Streetley on Thames youth hostels. I was so impressed with this superb cycling area that I am returning with my club (Chesterfield Spire) for a fixed base holiday at Streetley On Thames hostel.
Streetley is about 20 miles south of Oxford and is ideally situated to explore the wonderful quiet lanes of Oxfordshire and Berkshire. With a couple of hills which are in the 100 best climbs guide, and the vale of the White Horse plus the famous Ridgeway bridleway this is a great area to explore. For anyone interested, we have sole use of the hostel.It has 49 beds, but the warden has offered exclusive use if the hostel is half full. With breakfast and dinner the total is £33 a day.
The tour starts from saturday27th May until friday2nd June. Another option that some riders are doing is that as the dates include the bank holiday monday they are attending for a long weekend over 3 days. If anyone would like more information give me a ring on 07896925 469 or 01246 453562 or by e-mail to a good time guaranteed!

Update on Lantern Theatre Event

Due to the much higher than anticipated cost for us to show ‘A Day Out’ we have reluctantly decided not to show it. It is important to us that we keep the evening as a non-paying event but the cost would have been SIX TIMES MORE than we have ever had to pay to secure the right to show a film at previous events. We will be replacing the 48 minute play with two 20 minute cycling related features – both very good. The Postcard of the Peak film will be shown as advertised.

We are sorry about the disruption to the schedule. The revised programme can be seen here.


Special Christmas one-off Wednesday night easy ride on Wednesday 21 December.

Meet at Millhouses Park cafe to leave at 6.30 pm. Destination will be a Dore village pub. Entire route will be on roads with street lights but please also bring bike lights.

The ride is already in the rides calendar and on Eventbrite but check back here and our Facebook group page for any further updates.
