About Erewash Riders Association

Erewash Riders Association are a local group of volunteers dedicated to improving off road routes within the Erewash Area.

  • Dale Abbey / Hopewell Dale path
  • Shardlow area
  • Nooning Ford
  • Klondike
  • Derby Canal Restoration
  • Elvaston Castle
  • Shipley Park
  • Trent Meadows
  • Sinfin Moor
  • Stanton / Nutbrook Trail
  • Erewash Borough Council Development Plan
  • Allestree Park
  • Derwent Valley
  • Risley

Rides and Events

To help fund our work we regularly organise pleasure rides and events. A lot of these rides provide access to areas that are not normally accessible to horse riders. All our rides have a friendly atmosphere and we cater for every level of rider.

We also hold an Annual Dinner in February and an Annual General Meeting in April.


Our committee currently consists of 13 members. We hold a meeting once a month which allows us to discuss current bridleway actions along with the planning of social events and rides.


Our members receive four Newsletters a year. They contain the latest news and information on bridleway matters and events.


Erewash Riders membership is only £5 per year. For this you will receive a quarterly newsletter (via email) and invitations to attend our pleasure rides, annual dinner and AGM. Your membership also helps us to fight to open and maintain bridleways in the area. Please visit the Membership page for more information.
