Just misses out the Stanage edge loop behind Hathersage which is another 7.5 miles. So start at Hope and join it up Pin Dale then After Aston nip across the road and up Shatton Moor and back round to the start. Would be nice to do the whole loop, especially the climb up the causeway but the days are short now and with the social Xmasy crack it would be pushing it especially with a possible short stop in Edale. think.gif

22 miles and 3850ft of climbing.
Nigel
No go for me on that day.... angry.gif

Nigel

I guess that was a jibe at me for winging about the date...probably deserved, but the xmas ride was suggested by me in another thread but posted without discussing a date first....so tongue.gif

Wrong forum Mark. It the chasenettlebeatingpervs.com that you wanted.

I'd strip for charity, and Jaqui could take the photo, see what comes up innocent.gif
Nigel
Having spoken to a few of the 'regulators' whistling.gif it seems the 30th maybe a good date...

I am free all that week apart from boxing day....and may even play out twice!

Have Pm'd you Glynn.

PS - I would like to publicly apologise for being a sarky git yesterday, no offence was intended, was simply trying to make a point whilst maintaining a sense of humour about it. wink.gif
Suggsey
Hey Nigel, careful mate or you will be banished to one of those'other forums' that we all deserted tongue.gif

Nothing wrong with throwing yourself down the side of a mountain on a couple of planks of wood wacko.gif Only marginally more stupid than riding a mountain bike.

nice one mark, would that be WHO I THINK IT IS wub.gif

Fireman Sam
Ok. After todays ride in those si..y conditions I've re jigged this route. It was to be essentially todays route the other way round and included Shatton Moor which we ditched today. Also after Matt's off and resulting early departure he and Suggs missed kamikaze and the Pin Dale sections.

Meet at Hope as planned for 9.30. There's a bit more road parking round by the church if there's no room outside Woodbine.

Warm up the legs through Castleton to the broken road and then over to Pin Dale. Round to Bradwell and down and round to Ladybower and along the edge of the res. Up Wooler Knoll and finish with Hope drop-in. There's a bit of road work to link these sections but at least it will be ok what ever the weather and it should be quite a flowing ride.

Will be about 20 miles but the road sections will eat some of this and about 3400ft of descending.
pauly
I should be free for this one, not ridden in the peaks before either.
Bernard
Should still be ok for this one. Back and shoulder still giving me jip, but knees should ok.
You won't be able to miss me as I will be stinking of Ralgex.
