Winter conditions

Filed under: cycling,General — Mike Chapman @ 9:14 pm

We were unsure about the conditions, snow showers and sun, for a ride but we went anyway. We started from Hathersage, cycled up to Stanage past Higger Tor and over the top to Sheffield. On our return we passed Stoney Middleton went up past Eyam and a number of hills. It was not a ride to strengthen our partnership!

Judy at the top of Bridge end pasture – a green road

A bright cold day Judy and I cycled through and up Grimbocar wood. Well, we walked a lot of it as it was quite moist under a light frost. We noticed that there had been some felling on Hagg side. We nipped over the fence and saw this view.

What did you do on Saturday? I made this happen.

Car and sofa

It ended up here where we could put a lot of friends or Lynne and I could both have a snooze on separate sofas at the same time!
