    Rides

    Any volunteers to lead a road ride on Saturday morning? Plenty to see and visit in the Peak District, but always good to have someone who knows where to go at the front

    Ride Out

    Hi Bryn,

    If required on Saturday morning.

    Will gladly lead a ride out , will include a stop for lunch. Many routes in me head ,will sort something with lots of variety . A route with many views.

    Away from this Saturday until the week before Ripley Event. Will post more details when back from Dolomites.

    Let me know if i should plot a course.

    Andrew

    Thanks Mick I think anyone not familiar with the Peaks will really enjoy this one.
    So come on if your not going on MickDB1 off road bimble shake a leg and join a ride out and see some fantastic scenery.
    You will not be disappointed on either trip.

    Hello MikeyB, thanks for stepping in. Look forward to meeting you.

    Aiming to ride the route on Sunday 4th Sept from Lumb Farm at 11am or failing that Monday 5th September at 11am. Iron out any hiccups.

    Am away in the Dolomites till then and as Julies not home at present ive made an executive decision to extend my holiday by one day.
    Any excuse for another ride

    Is that the door,,,,,, shes home

    Brin, Andy and others.

    Did this route yesterday.
    Set off at 4pm from Chesterfield, picked up the route just north of Holymoorside and arrived back home at 8.30 and that was a steady ride.

    Andy, it's a very, very good route mate, really nice country roads (Plenty of tractors about on single track roads ) great scenery and i thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Just a couple of thoughts.
    1) A run up by ladybower to the fairholmes cafe ? bit of a tourist trap these days but still a nice scenic run for those unfamiler with the area? (even nicer when there's water!
    2) I can organise a brew and biscuit stop for everone in Holymoorside if you wish?

    Regards
    Andy

    Hey up Andy Dazchallenge and anyone else interested
    The fairholmes cafe/cyclestop is open all weekend
    If you want to take yer bike all the way to the end of the "top reservoir" you can only do this midweek = These "dams" were the ones used for the practicing before the dropping of the bouncing bombs in WW2 If yer get up there friday afternoon / evening theres a great photo pic available of whatever you can get in between the two towers of the dam wall
    If yer follow
    Someone that I have showd it too will no doubt come up with the picture

    The weather will be grand up there but the midgets come out not long after dusk
