A big tough Peak District road ride, with hills of course.

The view from Monsal Head

It started with a Facebook message. So many rides do these days. This one started "Going to the peaks on Saturday the 19th March...." and concluded with "...thinking 80/100 miles with lots of hills". How could I resist, I had already planned a suitable route ages ago, I just needed a Saturday to deploy it into! 590

A couple of hills near Bakewell; including climbs #34 & #35

Monsal Head

One moment I'm stood wondering if I should go left or straight on and a few minutes later I'm pushing hard sweating my way up one of the most wonderful cycling climbs in the UK.  At this point I'm convinced that I got the loop the right way round and I am indeed riding up climb #30 from 'the book'. 276
