It's about the same as the first half of the Hereford ride. You'll be right ;-)

Hello there, I'm in for this. Road bike just rebuilt and it rides like a twitchy dream!
If there's any chance of scrounging a lift of anyone from either Macclesfield or Buxton railway station I'd really appreciate it. First train gets to both places at about ten to ten.

Rich, I can pick you up from Macclesfield station and we can drive up.
I was going to ride up to the Cat and Fiddle from my house. It takes me about 30-35 minutes on a good day, but it's a bit tight on time if the train gets in at ten to ten, plus it'd be nice to have plenty in reserve for the ride.

There are a couple of short steep sections, but I've configured the ride so most of the climbs use gentler gradients. Thankfully I won't be using a 42:25 bottom gear this time.
There are a few steep descents though so make sure your brakes work.

It'd be nice to see something other than the electric yoghurt pot Dave...
