Until 5 years ago I'd never ridden full suss there,still just as rough you just end up going faster and the crashes hurt more :oops: !
Rigid is ok but some suss forks to take out the sting is always nice,I'll be using SIDS but if I'd got round to building the Attitude I might have been tempted :shock: its a loooonnnnggg way off though :(

Recced an area south of Eyam on Sunday - not challenging enough for the likes of this possee, methinks. Way too much road work required to link the interesting parts too.

Heading west to examine the Tegg's Nose/Macc Forest area this weekend...

Mr K - in the field

How many miles/kilometres long is the loop you are considering? Just an approximate figure would be good - I may have a VERY fiendish plan!


Any more information on the above?

I can recommend a 3 hour loop that takes in Chatsworth, Bakewell, Rowsley etc. Something for everyone.
