Long Cycle route to Hathersage

Amanda, Keisha and Louis enjoyed a visit to Mark Eaton park to catch up with a good friend. I took the opportunity go for a bike ride and meet up with a friend at Stanage. It was so good to get out on the bike today one of the things I appreciated most was to take in the sounds, sensations and varied aromas! My route took me through Barlow and on up to Owler Bar. From there I followed the main road to Hathersage and a couple of miles down the road I took the turning leading back to Sheffield. I followed the road to Ringinglow and headed along the road which follows Stanage Edge and goes below Bamford edge arriving eventually at Yorkshire Bridge. For the final leg I headed back to Hathersage and then back home via Grindelford, Claver Crossroads and Baslow. I returned home through Cuthorpe. This 36 mile route was great, a lot of hills and to be honest the final pull up the Chatsworth road had finished me I'm looking forward to trying it gain but now I have different route in mind, the Winnats pass route through mam nick and down to Edale.

In the afternoon I returned to Stanage I enjoyed a couple of routes at Stanage with Gordon.
