The Sparrowfart is a road ride run on a Saturday morning with a 7:30am start. These are shorter rides around 30 miles aiming to get people home in time to spend the majority of the day with their family.

The start point is the traffic lights at Newbold, routes generally head west into the Peak District and as a result are quite hilly.

Pace fits in with our club “Red” pace, which is around 14-15mph average over the hills.

The Sparrows ride year round, applying the Velominati rules #5 and #9.
