Well! We're back. After much research and preperation and some last minute wobbles over the weather forecast we've popped our cycle camping cherry's! We drove the twenty miles or so th the High Peak Trail at Middleton Top - they charged me £10.80 to park for three days, though this causeed much head scratching in the shop so I can't garuntee it would cost the same again! here's LO as we're about to leave. Note the two stoways in his pannier pockets! Off we go along the trail. About five miles in we have a puncture! My multi tool doesn't fit his wheel nuts! Doh! Luckily a passing chap has the correct size spanner and hast the inner tube changed in a jiffy. We stop at Parsley Hay for lunch, buy correct spanner, just in case! There has evidently been a very heavy down pour, but we missed it. Not long after we arrive at our camp site, The Royal Oak at Hurdlow. Tent is soon up and we scoff veggie sausage and Smash! Next morning we pack up in the rain, but it stops as we leave. We have breakfsat in the pub before we go. It's lovely, but a bit on the steep size. That said, its huge and we make some of it into sandwhiches which are had for supper later. We head off down Tissington Trail. Its down hill for the most part - Wheeeeee! We stop mostly only for trail mix. We turn off the trail at Tissington and follow route 54 through the Tissington estate along quiet country lanes which offer some fabulous views. Not long after we arrive at our camp site near Carsinton Water, The Pudding Room - The owner has a bakery and shop onsite. She's in the right job, I can confirm that her pusddings and her campsite (flat campsite - epic!) are both excellent. Son pretends to be a zombie in the night and scares me to death. Next morning we pack up in the rain again. Head off down route 54 to Carsington Water and do a circuit of the resevoir, before following the route back to the high peak trail and retracing our tyre tracks to middleton top. Sad to say its the end of our first cycle camping tour and we can't wait to go again! What have we learned? We packed too much food. I need a new pair of Crocs. Other campers are jealous when you arrive by bike. Monopoly Deal card game is addictive and makes young boys cheat. We love cycle camping!!!!
