Five riders met up at the Star pub woodhouse, for Kev’s 48 mile route, second attempt, heading towards Pleasley . The first being plagued by mechanical issues, but this time everything went okay to my relief, phew.

Weather was set fair for perfect conditions 15-21 degrees. Going through Temple Normanton, Hasland and Staveley. We then took a left hand bend only to see a 16% climb up to Eckington cricket club 😮‍💨. Steve commented at the top, my face looked the same colour as my helmet.😂.

One of the many climbs on the day to test your legs and lungs, we finally reached Rother Valley park for a welcome bacon cob.

After the cafe stop/picture, we ventured back culminating in some more stunning scenery approaching Bolsover Castle.

Great route by Kev, with Dave, Steve, Martin and Roger. South Yorkshire and Derbyshire is sure a climbers paradise.

Well done and great effort by the lads. 👍
