Mostly hampered by the 50's in Derbyshire. The route wouldn't let me plot what we actually rode - for clarity, we drove from Monyash through Crowdecote (sharp hill bends - 1st gear) to Longnor then hung a left as per the route. Second discrepancy is at Meerbrook, we turned left at the Lazy Trout and followed that section up and over the roaches- at one point it's very steep and gated, but it does bring you back up to the Leek-Buxton road just prior to the Winking Man pub and although it's steep and gated, it's views are awesome.
Stopped at Yonderman cafe on the way out after 90 minutes, Leek for a stroll although Buxton would be a better midway lunch point.
