The August bank holiday weekend saw some magnificent weather in the UK. This was a rarity. It also saw Mont brush up his man skills through the lighting of a barbecue (also a rarity).
With the clement riding conditions being well flagged in advance, I took the opportunity to designate the Monday morning as ‘ride time’ in the family calendar.
I would strike out into the Peak District. And this post is an account of that ride.
Quick Plug For The Peak
You really should come riding here.
(‘Here’ being the Peak District in the UK.)
When the weather is playing ball, it’s an awesome place to ride your bike. We’ve got loads of little valleys (and Peaks), cross-crossed by quiet country roads. There are an infinite (more or less) number of routes to suite all abilities, moods (?!) and times available to ride.
It makes me think: in the future I should offer guided rides around my favourite routes, views and climbs.

Ahem. My blog GPS tells me I’m going ‘off route’. Let’s get back to the ride.
