Yesterday when the football was on I took an opportunity to get out on the roadbike and cover some miles with noticeably less traffic. It was hot and windy and despite trying to pla a route with a headwind on the way out and a tailwind on the way home, it didn’t quite work out. The result was a solid ride in both directions, but it was deinitely worth getting out there.
Today Tyrrell and I were out all day in the Dark Peak heat. It an epic ride from Padfield taking in Longendale, Langsett, Cut Gate, Ladybower, Edale and Doctor’s Gate on the way back. Riding was somewhat spoilt by a broken saddle rail around Ladybower, but the stick that’s shown in the photo above some how managed to stay in place for the rest of the ride. Loads of ace photos due to blue skies all day. Full ride report and pictures in the next update.
