Hi I am posting up a proposed forum ride. I would like to gauge the interest and try to figure out a date over the next few days, then the date and time will be finalised and we will go from there. The proposed route is a hilly ride and I anticipate it will be fairly challenging, but it will be undertaken at a leisurely pace and no one will be left behind, we will regroup at the top of each climb. There will be time for a brief stop in Holmfirth to refuel if needed. Date: TBC Start / Finish: Glossop Distance: Approx 50 mile (just under) Total Climb: 3,582.68 ft Average Speed: As fast as the slowest rider (but please respect the challenge). Total Time for Event: 5 Hours estimated Route: Head out from Glossop, climb the snake pass, drop down to Ladybower then out to Holmfirth. From there we will refuel and head up over Holme Moss, drop over the other side for a very brief section on Woodhead road then turn off and head back into Glossop.

I propose a Sunday as Saturday mornings are generally off limits for me due to other commitments. PS. Any interested Manchester parties can meet up to either cycle out to Glossop together or to jump a train. If riding this will take the distance up to about 80 mile.
