- Before the 'What are the conditions in the Peaks Post….'
It is sh1tty, sh1tty & wet, sh1tty, sh1tty and soooo wet… Bradwell Edge is hilarious. I felt like a hippo trying to get down that and the bike was so sh1tted up the drive train wouldn’t work. I dipped the bike in the swollen and fast flowing river in Bradwell, cleaned it right up.
The descent off Hope Cross (where there isn’t normally a river)..
Post river wash..
…but still a good ride with some epic views…

Yep, Blackley Hey it is. I normally do the Beast(Fluffy Kitten), but I was trying some alternatives.
Parked at Mam Nick; dropped from Hollins Cross; climbed Jaggers Clough to Hope Cross; down Blackley Hay; Rowlee Farm to Crook Hill Farm; Round and across Ladybower to Thornhill; up Shatton Edge; down Bradwell Edge; through the concrete works; up Pin Dale; down Cave Dale; through Caslteton and up to Mam Tor; then out and back to the top of Rushup Edge (I was going to do the whole edge and drop
into Barber Boot but I CBA with another road climb-especially with all the Lycra around). 43k 1500m up & down. Not a bad route and not the best of what’s there I know but not a bad route.
GPS available if anyone wants it. Just drop me an e-mail.Posted 5 years ago
