This route takes you from Sandy, Beds up the A1 to Stamford. Then its lovely sweeping roads through Market Harborough, Derby and onto Matlock Bath and a stop for refreshments. Then its off again taking lovely roads across the Peak District past Buxton and to Teggs Nose Country Park on the edge of Macclesfield for another stop for refreshments. Then off again on different lovely road to Buxton for a fuel stop. Then its north to the edge of Glossop on lovely roads, to pick up the Snake Road to do the Snakes Pass. Then a fantastic detour from Ladybower Reservoir going north up to Langsett Reservoir and returning on the same brilliant road. Then its wonderful roads again back to Matlock Bath for another stop to take in the other bikes, refreshments etc. before setting off on the same roads back to Sandy. All in all its about 9 hours of riding so set off early.
