The Annual Retrobike ‘Mr. K’s Day in the Peaks’ Ride 2010
Saturday 25th September 2010
20 miles approx spread out over a full day's riding with plenty of fuel stops and banter.
:: Meeting at: Woodbine Cafe
, Hope at 10:30am for 11:00am start.
[Restricted on road parking and a Pay and Display car park ~ Regular trains from Manchester and Sheffield]
Grid Ref: SK170835 ~ Postcode: S33 6RD
Plenty of options in and around the Hope Valley, including a campsite about half a mile from the start point, and the infamous Woodbine B&B.
Rocky and natural Peak District tracks and trails with long climbs and longer descents. Can be a bit exposed on the moors so be prepared if the weather is inclement. Some short road sections but mostly off road. A few steep technical drops and plenty of rocks, glorious views and fast descents.
Year on year Mr. K has built this event into the pinnacle of the Retrobike calendar and this year he has kindly given the NW&NW Area group the honour of organising this great event, no pressure then…
The route is a classic and is the same which has been used for the past two years. Here is link to Mr. K’s guide:

Aftermath threads for both these years can be found below, i'm sure 2010 will be just as successful:
Hope to see you there
