I didn’t do much riding last month as life admin and sinusitis got in the way.
4th Feb – Peak District, Ladybower Loop
Classic loop around Ladybower, from the Ladybower Inn, including quite a bit of hike-a-bike right at the beginning up the side of Win Hill, then down to the Rman Road, following on to BLAH up the slippy slab, over the moors, through the Nature Reserve. Took us ages because: I’m slow, Dave got chatty with the locals, Dave needs a new bike. It was a glorious day though.
18th Feb – Peak District, short but great loop
Started out from Hope, up the Roman Road, down to Jaggers Clough down to the road, then off up the side of Mam Tor and a hike-a-bike up the walkers path. Down and along to Hollins Cross and back via the slippiest descent into Castleton. Much quicker this week, and I actually felt ok despite recent lack of confidence.
I have 4 drafts waiting for me as usual, so I’ll be writing again soon.
