What do I drink? Depends on the time of day! Now, this beast discussion… where’s that come from then? The route is under lock and key for now!

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! 🙄Posted 4 years ago

Are there any trains out to Hope or anyone going from central Manc able to give me a lift?
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 dayPosted 4 years ago
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.
From Manchester Piccadilly, 7.45am or 9.22
From Sheffield, 9.20am
There you go.Posted 4 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
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… 🙂Posted 4 years ago
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!Posted 4 years ago
