We did 3/4 of this today as a group of 3. Really nice run out, some great vistas, some very close hedges. This is one of those routes that youd be lucky to fathom once without it being on sat nav or in depth local knowledge. Gin to do it again backwards in a few weeks.
My favourite Sunday run - Ashbourne to the High Peak and back. Circular route - mainly small country roads. Lots of bends, great scenary - not a high speed run, Ive done it on a C15 before now. Stop for a mug of tea at Wetton Mill on the way back, good bikers tea room - open in the week end in winter, all day in summer.
