    Road ride on Saturday

    Anybody up for a road ride on Saturday, the Guzzi's not really suitable for the kind of minor roads Philip is thinking of ?

    Mmmm twas not intended as a hijack , and I wasn't exactly offering to lead anyone anywhere TBH so apologies to Flip....

    I was just wondering if anybody was up to anything else as there are normally a couple of small 'break off' groups from the big ride?

    Route sorted, manually typed into my new sat nav, fek know if it works or not only really used it once & never done a route, could be a right old mystery tour

    Rough route will be out to Leek for an early fuel stop so everyone make sure they have enough for the rest of the day, then
    Onecote & Hartington,
    Castleton,
    Monyash,
    Bakewell,
    Ashford in the Water,
    Monsal Head Hotel,
    over to Blue John Cavern coming in down the Winnats
    Back up Winnats
    Chapel en Le Frith
    down to Buxton so we can ride Long Hill to...
    Whaley Bridge
    down to Macclesfield so everyone can ride "The Fiddle run"
    Back down to Congleton on the A54 for some nice views
    Back roads back to Mow Cop.

    Best I can come up with a short notice as I don't know the Peaks that well and no time no time to recce the route now.

    Not quite sure about a lunch stop because The cafe at Monyash might be a little to soon in the ride and the Monsal Head Hotel would be my next choice, fab views, but they could be busy...will have to see how we get on, hopefully a smallish group that will be happy to play it by ear.
