Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay!

Ride details are as follows:

Meeting place: Ladybower Resevoir - Peak District National Park car park. There is a fee for parking (appx £1) but we can get some food there after the ride.

Location: Signposted from A6103.

Start time: 10.am (although this may be 10.30!)

Ride: Loop to Hope/Edale for lunch stop (or larger loop to return to Ladybower)
Ride time: 4 - 6 hrs.

Ride details: The loop I am intending to use will be fairly testing although I feel we will miss Mam Tor & Jacobs Ladder due to the severity. However, the loop we shall do will still be challenging but very enjoyable for all abilities.
I will not divide into different groups so the ride will cater for all. It is neither a race or a test of your own abilities...All are welcome!

**Any questions give me a bell or e/mail**

See you there!

Guys, trust me the Fairholmes car park on the map I posted is the correct car park. It does get quite busy there but you can get a coffee while you wait for Big G Very Happy

Thanks for the info Nathan...

Hi everyone....the car park is the MAIN Ladybower Reservoir and is situated just off the bridge as you enter the reservoir. It has cycle hire/food etc and is signposted from the bridge.

My telephone no is 07807 294752

In the event that you can't get through I will be with my partner, Julia whose number is 07866 451 243.

Cheers! bg

Gotta say, from what Gav has said, this car park seems more likely to me:

Thanks BG for a great day out on Sunday.

Every part was good, the pain of the climbs and the bone shaking descents.
We didn't do Jacobs Ladder on Sunday so cant answer your Q Nath.

My legs ache and I keep getting flash backs to the descents, a top day.

When's the next one???

Great ride everyone It was a little drier than the last trip to the peaks wasn't it.
I had a really good day although I was flagging a bit towards the end.


Less said about the trip back down the M1 the better!
