Four riders set out for the club standby cafe at Bakewell as we have not been there for a while. We rode out towards Thorncliffe, Warslow and Hartington before dropping into Monnyash. We turned for the main Bakewell road and rode down a rough road in to town. Service at the cafe was so swift that the food arrived before the drinks! We had some minor directional issues on the way back but soon found the road back via Monnyash and Crowdecote and Longnor. We rode over Reapsmoor before climbing up to the Mermaid where “Two Sauces” and Simon battled it out but Simon took the lead on the final corner. There was a final attack by “Two Sauces” as we rode in to Thorncliffe so I took on the challenge and just managed to ride past before the Buxton road junction much to his disgust! A great forty four mile ride and thanks to all three for the company.
