On Sunday the 9th of June 2013 the Knights embarked on a a hilly 45 miler around Hathersage in Derbyshire in glorious 18 ̊ sunshine, taking in Stanage Edge, Hope, Edale, Mam Tor, Tideswell, Monsal Head, Great Longstone, Grindleford then back to the Fox House Inn. Two mystery guests joined us for lunch and one cycled with us in the afternoon, then sneaked off for a night of passion and celebration in a local Hotel. A grand day out, with a route organised by my great mate Pat (Pantani) Meeds.
We also tried our hill climbing skills, trying to beat times by the great Tom Simpson and Malcolm Elliott up the famous Monsal Hill Climb. Young Charlie Carruthers tried it twice and nearly beat sub 2 minutes, for the other keen Strava boys you’ll have to check their times on-line.
Today’s riders – Me, Heather, Roger, Linda, Jim, Andy, Pat, Simon, Charlie, Steve G, Steve P, Dave, and the mystery guests ——- Jonathan and Sheenagh!
