    Road rides- anyone volunteering?

    The off road rides seem to be developing nicely....

    If there's anyone willing to lead a road ride ( or two) who know the area it would be appreciated

    Tail end charlies welcome as well

    Not a great fan of group riding but would quite like a nice local route of about 100m or so. Anyone got one on a Garmin file?

    Ending with a scone-based rendevouz, just to be social of ourse.

    Thanks Mr I. Our EA rides tend to get a bit 'modified' along the way. Got praised for finding some great narrow lanes last year when leading in Suffolk. Didn't tell that I'd never seen them before

    If we don't have a big pack rideout, how about a rendez vous somewhere about tea o'clock?

    Hmm, the 08 route got modified along the way mainly due to the numbers!!
    My claim to fame is starting with 60ish bikes and finishing with 1 in tow
    Long story!!

    Both the planed and actual route include some of the most scenic and narrowest lanes in the Peak, some are as close to off roading as you will get without actually off roading

    Would love to arrange a meet up along the way but the nature of the ride I will be leading makes timing nigh on impossible!

    Lets have a beer on the Friday night and it may all seem so much easier

    Heres a ride out for Friday - the top road to the "dambuster dams" is shut Sat and Sun - you can only get to the second dam at weekends though - it is a lovely ride up there
    Also theres a nice pootle back
    Or invert the route and do it tuther way around
    Check out the mileage as some of the roads are on the single size so it will take time if yer on the steady side
    Best fish and chips is in the market place at Cromford 100yds off the main A6

    Excellent routes everyone. I'm feeling a bit shamed and must put up some Norfolk/Suffolk ones for visitors in the EA section.

    I'd say that's a distinct possibility... Subject, of course, there being no deeply hungover Scotsmen who's very lives depend upon the ministration of Diet Irn Bru, paracetamol and coffee

    I know. He's back from the Tyrol though. Thought he might have strudel overload and had to stop on.
