The main part of the festival took place took place on the Sunday with a number of cycle tours some of our friends (Chris and Pete) we participating in these events. Pete was doing the 100 mile cycle ride an impressive tour of the Peak district. We met Pete and his family in Hartington which was the half way point. One of the conditions for participating in the cycle event is that your bike should be older than 1987.
The event was very enjoyable and we're all enthused and want to get on our bikes!

After meeting Pete in Hartington we drove to the Chatsworth estate this was a good place to wander around while we waited for Pete to cycle the next 44 miles.
