Easter club ride


7:02 Wed, 21 Mar 2018

In years gone by we've had a Good Friday ride, often to the Peak, sometimes warm, sometimes a bit snowy. Often following the short/medium sportive routes.
What about this year?
Good Friday? Or a pre-Flanders Easter Sunday ride?
Which day would be preferable?
Medium sportive route for me, with a bail out option of doing the short and a cafe stop in Crich.

Hadn't got around to posting it yet, but I was planning to do an "extended Costa commute" on Good Friday (as we've done the last couple of years). Meet at Costa at the usual time leave 7.15-7.30am, head out via Sawley to Willington, then up towards Ashbourne and into the Peak. Still need to sort out domestic arrangements, but if other people are riding I'm happy to knock up a route.
[Weather-dependent, obviously; if it's wet or frosty we can head south instead of north from Willington.]

I might be able to squeeze a couple of hours in on the Easter Sunday, but other than that, I'm fully timetabled up already.

Great, early start on Good Friday, and a later more sociable time ride on Sunday.

How about this for a route? 75 miles, cafe stop in Tissington, should be around 4 1/2 hours plus the stop, so back 12.30-1pm. A few hills, but nothing too severe. It is only March, after all.

If the weather is bad we could head out the same way and then go somewhere like Barton instead.

I'm in, standard Tissington question "Are we going through the ford?"

Route comes down the hill to the ford, at this time of year I'll be using the footbridge. But you're welcome to try and ride through if you want to. :-)

I'll see how this weekend goes and what my fitness is doing but hopefully I shall join you
