This is my favourite road!
I love climbing the hill from Holme. There are some nice hairpins on a gradient and some lovely uphill sweeping bends that are great for overtaking on.
Once youve come down into the Valley (the downhill ride tests your nerves if you ride at speed) then you join the Manchester/Sheff road for a bit then cut left to cross the reservoir dam. This part of the ride has more blind bends and is less open, but none the less its a good ride with a tighter than expected hairpin at one point.
Turn left as you come into Glossop and hit Snake Pass to Sheffield, then back along the Manchester/Sheff road to Woodhead Reservoir again
