Yesterday I did a planned ride from Edale to Macclesfield. There were a few complications like the train didn’t go to Edale, so I had to Start in New Mills ride to Hayfield and then climb up over Edale Cross and down Jacob’s Ladder which was a snow covered little adventure. Took a big spill on the descent down the Ladder, but fortunately was able to get up after it.
A big ride in some very windy conditions which made it quick going with a tailwind and murder without. It was a headwind down the Cat and Fiddle and was absolutely murderous. I ate all the food I was carrying and by the end I was just glad to be finished.
