## RIDE INFO ##
This weekend’s ride is (almost) a duplicate of a ride from last year: Chunal of Love with just a few little tweaks ;)
Inspired to re-use the route no two reasons. Visting the Peak’s last weekend and passing over Monk’s Road and remembering just how much I love it there. The second,I didn’t actually get to do the main Monk’s Road climb, as a rider had a spoke blow-out and we had to wheel very slowly back down into Glossop.
As ever when we head out Glossop way, there are some more industrial, main a-style roads on some parts of this one but think it’s worth it for a tootle out and about round Glossop way. Some real nice challenging hills on the route and some cracking views, especially between Charlesworth and Chunal when we reach the highest point of the ride.
Post ride will be at Woodthorpe. Hopefully somewhere around 12:45-13:00.
