A trip to my mother’s gave a chance for some biking in the Peak District. Starting out from home, I rode through the childhood haunts in the Cordwell Valley to access the Peak District.
Climbing up Johnnygate Lane to access the edge of the Peak District, the flowers were beautiful.
Then in the Peak District proper, it’s time to climb up to Wellington’s Monument above Baslow, then along Baslow Edge, Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edge towards the Longshaw Estate.
After a lunch stop at the cafe, time to ride across Totley Moor, then head south over Salter Sitch and Big Moor to rejoin the route into Cordwell Valley and home.
From the Cordwell Valley, the rain began, so it was a climb up Horsleygate Lane, and then a time-trial home along the road.
