As always, we meet at the Rose and Crown Ivinghoe and recommend bringing a copy of the route.

 2015 Trip to the Peaks

Andy Beezer has put together some plans for a fantastic trip to the Peak District for May 2015. Below are the details of his open invitation –

Who would like to come on a Peak District cycling adventure next May and cycle some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK?

When: Friday 1st to Monday 4th May 2015
Where: Hartington Youth Hostel (
What: 3 days of riding (Sat/Sun/Mon) in the Peaks with 2 route options each day, one challenging and another less so, with both routes meeting at a common point for lunch (which means riders can switch groups at lunch time if they wish). One of the challenging rides will go up the famous Winnatts Pass and over Mam Tor.

I’ve made a provisional booking at Hartington YHA for the following rooms:

4 X 2 bed rooms
2 X 4 bed rooms
1 X 3 bed room

The YHA have quoted me a flat rate of £31.50 per person per night (inc breakfast) though there will be an adjustment up or down depending on the room.

Please let me know if you would like to come ASAP as the booking will only be held for a few days.

If you are interested, please head on over to this page ASAP and register your interest. Andy will get right back to you with details of how to secure your place on what will be a popular adventure.
