• I'll tweak the route over this weekend because there's a couple of little bits that need sorting out.

    As far as cafe stops are concerned, there's a good coffee shop in Hope if anyone fancies a bit of caffeine assistance before the first big climb. Tideswell might be preferable to Bakewell although there are options between the two and as far as Calver.

  • Hope also good for emergency bike mechanics, as is Hathersage. Bakewell I always find touristy but sure it has decent cafes, there‚Äôs a solid cafe opposite tideswell church/ cathedral that used to be good- used to do my sprint recovery days to there from Edale, smash a breakfast, do a ten mile loop, eat some tart and trundle home.. happy days.

    Good luck all, would love to join but frankly not fit enough
