Fully rigid here too and looking forward to a pleasant walk on Jacob's Ladder if we are going down it.

We checked out Jacobs Ladder a few weeks ago and you can forget it - pretty much unrideable at the top due to walkers and the charming failings of retrobrakes and the bottom section is a complete frame smashing boulder fest - ask Max if you don't believe me!

Here's your Saturday route - click on the points or lines for the details:

We go out of Hayfield over Rushup Edge and down to Edale for luncheon. The from Edale up to Hollins Cross, then Mam Tor before retracing our steps back over Rushup and across to Roych Clough, then speeding back down to Hayfield.

It's going to be a long day - so a spritely start is essential unless you want to sleep under the stars...
