    Sat 19th or Sun 20th Sept Peak District ?

    Morning .

    I'm hoping to pop up to the Peak District on Either of those days.
    I'll be coming up from Wellingborough and it will be my first time in that part of the world.
    Would anyone care to join me , possibily someone who is familiar with the area and best routes ( but that's not essential ).

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Regards

    Black top is tarmac.

    Saturday would be my preferred day...but I can do Sunday as well but may need to bail early afternoon to be home. I'm on the opposite side of the peaks to you but I'd propose leek as a starting point. How would fit with your plans chang5?

    I'm happy to find a B & B for the night and the spend the weekend there !
    Leek sounds a good meeting spot for me on the saturday morning , ( maybe at 11am.) as i will be driving up from Northants. We can possibly meet up with others elsewhere depending on their starting location. But i'm easy just looking forward to viviting the area for the first time ever.
    I'm happy to go off tarmac if needs be.

    Ideal, that gives you an easy run in then A50/ashbourne/leek, I'll be coming from Macclesfield.

    Initially I was thinking of doing a clockwise route so that you finished over the right side for you heading back to the M1 or down to matlock but if your planning on stopping on Saturday night that gives more options.

    Morning

    There is an East Midlands breakfast meet on the 19th in Nottingham - always a good bunch and a great breakfast.

    It's a nice hour and a half run for you through Rutland so you could be there at 9am. An hour for breakfast, say leave there at 10am then it's less than an hour to Matlock so you'd be there (or near there, in a traffic free environment ) around 11am with both you and the bike fuelled up.

    If you post this up on the East Midlands section you might get a couple of companions - I might even join you myself but will have to see nearer the time.

    Enjoy

    Be good if you could make. I'd personally prefer to ride straight to the peaks from my start location- not too keen on leaving home to early, but thanks anyway for the suggestion.

    Can we finalise a meeting point for the Saturday morning for 11am, if everyone is happy with that time.
