Copied from UKGser site Peak Parks post



Lets hope for some nice weather, those who want to put the routes into their sat nav here is plan leave CMC then through the Villages of Alton, Beeley, look at the Big House (Chatsworth) go towards Baslow but cut back to ride up the 13 Bends A619 towards Bakewell then cut across A6020 to Great Longstone up onto Longstone Edge (Moor Road) and onto the Yonderman for grub.

Then onto Matlock Bath, up through Wardlow, Asford in the Water, (now if we have time, up Taddington on A6 turn off to Chelmorton and back to Monyash if not then) straight to Monyash then the A515 to Newhaven left onto the famous A5012 Via Gellia all the way to Cromford and Matlock Bath.

If we can leave CMC Prompt or better, the extra miles after lunch wont disappoint, so lets not dawdle at CMC or have a dessert at the Yonderman .

Any other local S10 rider who knows the roads i have suggested and would volunteer to be the tail end Charlie, pipe up and be counted, much appreciated.

Any thoughts or suggestions esp from those who have to travel from afar are welcome.

Hey Zed, why all the way back down to Alton (as in Alton towers) before Beeley? That's almost a third of the way back home for me (Hereford) or is there another Alton?

I may be pushed for time later in the day... so planning to get to CMC around 9:15 ... and then I'll need to be on my way home by 1300hrs at the latest..... unfortunately I didn't factor in a grandson's birthday party  ::)

I'm pretty sure this is the route for you satnavs if you have them. Please feel free to change it if I've not followed it correctly. I know most of these roads and it's a cracking ride ;-)

Rain or shine... or both, I'll be turning up. Probs a bit earlier like Bryn too, so get more time to paw over any interesting Super Tens should others do the same...

Nearly right, going the wrong way from CMC, missing Alton and going off piste at Baslow  ;D but you have the shorter after dinner route from Ashford in the Water to Monyash which we may have to do.
Thanks Syntec4  ::003:: for forcing me to actually plan a route, been meaning to try motogoloco, now to put it in my new 590

So this is the full route
 https://www.motogoloco.com/map?route=18424    It says 1 3/4hrs but i think that's on a moped. ;)

Next time I babble on about April being dryer than May according to the Buxton Weather Station convincing everyone to choose the 9th to meet, please feel free to tell me I talk B**llocks

Its look of the draw!  I don't think there are any regional weather forcasts any more. They centralised all the forcasting and lost the local predictions many years ago.
Bring some thermals as it'll be cold going over the tops!

Weather been to n fro all week but looking good enough to me not to worry to much. Least it's not ice rink conditions like last year's meet there. I might even go camping the night before....  8)
