That's a fascinating route, Paul: a Circuit of the Cat and Fiddle to complement the Circuit of the Edge? Worth keeping in the calendar as an annual Challenge Ride (bit like the old "Mile High" ride)?
Samuel Pecke : A bald headed buzzard content only in wenching, lying and drinking.
The fast group did this route a year or two ago when the cafe stop was at Peak View, so I thought we'd try it again.
It was made up on the fly last time so I had to rack my brains to remember all the twists and turns.
It goes up just about every climb close to Macc - Pym Chair's about the only one missing (but there's no reason why it couldn't be added!)
How good it was to be out on this ride! Thank you to Paul for creating the route again. 23 riders, 21 of whom made it to the brace of cafes. Two groups: Paul, James, Rich, Matt B the Younger, welcome again Hannah Bridger and Richard and Jamie Storey; Andy, Graham W, Feed, Jeremy, me, Dave Har, Andrew R, Warren, Eddie, Steve H, Brian R, Cath, Dave Hal, Mick, Joe and Tom B (who carried on after the cafe to return to Sheffield). In the end, three riders in the larger group descended Winnats, with the rest taking the Mam Nick loop. Then a different trio joined Paul's group for the ascent of Winnats, meeting us after we had mostly walked up the broken road of Mam Tor, before the glorious run down to Whaley. A great afternoon out, thank you to all my companions.
