No other events found - probably means the hard men have given up pie and pea suppers in order to get fit for the next social season!

Mid-week Runs

Wednesday afternoon at 1:15pm (ish)

Midweek run starts out from Hathersage Station and generally rides up the Derwent Valley to Kings Tree and back.  After a gentle start along the Hope Valley, expect to be hammered up Bamford and allowed not a moment's respite all the way to Kings Tree at the top end of the Howden Reservoir.  The return journey is more of the same only this time gravity is on the side of the fat boys - hehe!!

Tea and buns in the Pool Cafe afterwards.

Friday afternoon at 1:15pm (ish)

This run also starts from Hathersage Station and rides sedately along the Hope Valley and Edale to Barber Booth and back.  The shenanigans typically start on the way back down Edale when somebody (not mentioning any names - tho rhyming slang might be 'rough') inevitably decides to jump away going down that little hollow past the barn and then it's eyeballs out all the way back to Hope.  The last stretch back into Hathersage is where the rest of us get our own back on the Edale trouble-makers - or try at least!

More tea and buns in the Pool Cafe afterwards.
