Ride to Longnor. Intermediate. 61 miles, all on road. Quite hilly. Start at Amici & Bici at 9.30am.
After climbing steadily through Holmesfield to Beeley Moor we’ll drop steeply to Rowsley before climbing equally steeply to Stanton in Peak. Quiet lanes through Alport, Youlgreave and Parsley Hay lead to Crowdecote (from the easier direction) and shortly to Longnor for lunch. Leaving this (the only) cafe stop we’ll head north then east through Chelmorton and the easy part of the ride through Sheldon and Ashford in the Water. We’ll go through Great Longstone, Hassop and Baslow before climbing Froggatt Edge to reach home.
