    So, after a long break there’s going to be another Peaks Pootle on December 1st, starting at 10am in either the Hope, Derwent or Edale Valleys. I’ll decide that and the route later.

    As always, it’ll be a 15mile ish ride around some trails in the Dark Peak with the emphasis on the social side of things, so….

    1) if you’re fast, hold the gates and count the folks through
    2) if you’re slow – have something to talk about with the other 20 people with you
    3) bring cake
    Pootles aren’t a typical ‘group ride’. I started them ‘cos I hated being the person at the back. I wanted a group ride for the people at the back. There aren’t any people at the back in a pootle.

    Typical pootle traditions shall be upheld i.e. there will be cake, there will be banter, and there will be a pint after in a pleasant pub to warm those toes!

    It’s been a while, but what can i say, i’ve missed doing it.

    And i did promise.

    Previous cold pootles:

    Right the important stuff first:

    What t***s for pootling and

    Carrot cake or brownies?

    There is racing that weekend but it would be good to attend one of these before my 51st year ends.

    I don’t think we’ve had carrot cake on a Pootle before….

    I’m actually quite sociable really πŸ™‚

    I’m planning two routes – one for if the ground’s frozen, one for if it’s boggy.

    And of course there’ll be a collection for mountain rescue too as usual. Pootles have raised a modest Β£120ish so far from the three pootles we’ve collected at.

    I’d love to. Hardly done any riding in the peaks. I may bring a bike with funny size wheels. That’ll be something to ‘discuss’! That and beetroot cake. Trust me on that!

    On the basis of –

    Pootles aren’t a typical ‘group ride’. I started them ‘cos I hated being the person at the back. I wanted a group ride for the people at the back. There aren’t any people at the back in a pootle.

    I may well give the new bike a proper debut.
    What ty………………..oh, sorry.

    S33 6aa is pretty central for the options I’m considering

    Cheers for the postcode, nearly 3 hrs away, will wait for the forecast nearer the time before deciding

    Think the first bit is quite quick anyway, its the waiting for the hole to heal after that takes the time.

    I’ll be rear gunner as normal Pook!!

    I think I might actually make the trek over from Aberystwyth to do this… The last one I rode (in 2010) was great. Now… which bike to choose for a Peaks Pootle, hmmmmm…?
