A local tour

Filed under: General,Pain — Mike Chapman @ 8:51 pm

I went for a ride, I thought it was summer, but after 102 Km wearing two shirts and the fact that I only drank a half litre of water in 5 hours confirmed it was was cold! Glossop – Holme Moss – Holmfirth – Strines – Ladybower – Hope – Edale – Rushop Edge – Chapel en le Frith – Chinley – Old Glossop – Padfield. A total of 102 Km, the best bit is 2567 metres of accent.

The stump of an old Horse Chestnut tree that needs to be watered with weed killer

We visited Dave and Leslie in Mollington near Chester. Cycling around there is relatively flat. Dave and Leslie were not keen on having their photographs taken but I took some anyway.
