At last I've got round to uploading my photo's. I remembered my camera this year, so when I got to the top of the climb I tried to get a photo of everybody as they came up, or as they came down from Hollins Cross. Some people are missing from the climb as they were just too fast for the focus to lock onto
Fluffy Chicken you were in a good forth place reaching the summit at 11:18, according to Mr Minolta; Ninja camera, not far behind this chap
That's Fluffy Chicken that is
But seriously though, there really has to be another way up to the mast. It’s impossible to ride up, it’s painful to walk up, it’s just plain wrong. When we arrived at the rideable gritty gravel path, some woman came along from another path looking as fresh as a daisy ,I actually enjoyed all of the other climbs so come on you lot with local knowledge, sort it out.
Do you mean her? I wondered where she came from. There is a reason the girl wasn't tired and it's because she hadn't taken the "REAL MAN'S ROUTE"! I can't imagine doing the big day in the peaks and not having the toil up to the radio mast, it would be like a neon bible or watching snooker in black and white!

I've given Two-Tone a talking to about the folly of Crudcatchers but it didn't do any good.

All in a really, really good day. The Peaks ride is always the highlight of the Rb calendar and this year was better than ever. Thanks to everybody who helped run it and I can't wait until next year.
