    At least offer to buy me dinner before being so blatant.

    Pook-what do you drink? I owe you one! Can’t wait! I’m in!!! I am definitely NOT going down the beast though….. Not brave enough for that yet 🙂

    In an attempt to do this on the cheap and have a weekend away with MrsT we were thinking of getting train. Manchester and booking a Premier Inn.
    Are there any trains out to Hope or anyone going from central Manc able to give me a lift?

    The type of drink you really really enjoy…all to yourself! For me it’s a nice glass of red 😉 and Ignore me about the route plan. Just read ‘beast’ above & got all scaredy pants! 🙄

    Well SP, I must admit I do like a nice Shiraz – though I’m not sure what I’ve done to earn it!

    In the meantime, here’s another Pootle…

    If I do bring the beemer, you can have a spin – but might be bringing the van. I’ve got to pick a wheel up off you as well I think – for Pete?

    yes, there’s a direct train to edale / hope (depending on start point) from piccadilly. Not many on a sunday though and they’re only small trains so you will need to check times and hope they’re not ram pakced with other bikers getting the train out for the day

    Ok folks – route decided – thanks for the rubber stamp from nbt and thepodge.

    START: Edale main car park
    TIME: 10am for 10.15am grand depart.

    There is ample parking, for over 4 hours (ride + pub) it’s £5 in change. Yes there is free parking elsewhere, but if you park there I can’t see you getting ready/arriving so you have to be on time at edale. I don’t take a register!

    The train station is just by the car park – we meet in the main car park, not the train station car park though, so you’ll have to roll down to that to find us.

    Trains:
    From Manchester Piccadilly, 7.45am or 9.22
    From Sheffield, 9.20am

    There you go.

    I can’t make this, but anyone who’s a National Trust member might like to know that there’s a National Trust car park just below Mam Nick – where the road cuts past Rushup Edge and heads down to Edale. There’s a direct off-road descent from there to Edale. Of course you’d have ride bak up at the end of the day, but you’d have free car-parking with your NT sticker. And a bonus climb. Win/win… 🙂

    But if you do that you HAVE to be in edale on time or we’ll abandon you! ;o)

    Are you divulging the route, or is it a surprise on the day?

    Surprise on the day. That’s when I tend to make it up

    oooh goody, Edale = starting with a big climb out

    Premier Icon Pook

    … and also a descent back in as a result

    I could be tempted Willhelm. Try no to flat on the Roych this time…

    I seem to remember us both repairing punctures on the Roych… After I’d fixed your headset in the car park 😀

    Wild route speculation.

    I don’t ride an Orange Five, can I still come?

    P.S. Starting in Edale, can you blame us 😉

    I ride a Specialized with 26″ wheels and 3×9, can I still come? 😉

    ‘If’ I make it, it will be one of my first rides after having my bicep re-attached, totally unfit and put a stone on since summer (getting the excuses in early) – on that basis, it will be nice to have a ‘pootle’, rather than a Strava obsessed balls out blast. Will probably still try and go downhill slightly faster than my capabilities cater for though!

    so it’s not the cut gate/ doctors’s gate loop we discussed then?

    😉

    I suspect its a carry up Grindsbrook to start and back down Ringing Roger, I could be wrong.
