    So when is this, I assume THIS SATURDAY.

    Reverse route and Moynash will be better timing.

    But it's yours youngster.

    And by the way, who could confuse you with a Donkey?
    I have seen you in your "attire".

    Are you coming out to play then Malc?

    Did think about reversing it . I've only done the fiddle run once on the bike some years ago, normally take the A54, but I reckon its better going up it and I think Long Hill is a tad better in this direction too.....

    Its only about 3.5 hrs riding but we can have plenty of stops or could extend it if peeps want to visit busy Matlock Bath.

    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.
    Sounds shite, I'm not sure now

    The most sedate part is when we're waiting for Rushy's AA pick up truck

    According to Rushy:
    Set off from Bill's STD field at 10:30 then to Morrisons petrol station in Leek 15-20 minutes later. Join the ride at either.
