Peaks '07

Finally I've bothered to put up the pictures from our bike ride to and around the peak district that me and all my biking pals went on.

It was a painful but rewarding 2 days the first day we went about 40k from New Mills and found our way into Castleton, Derbyshire. we then went for our evening meal at the local pub called The Castle, to save weight most of us brought shorts n flip flops to change into, so as you can imagine we looked well cool!

Then the next day we went on a longer ride, 60km, over lots of hills climbing a total of 1600 meters (higher than Ben Nevis) . and went round the Ladybower reservoir too, which is where the Dambusters film was shot if any one cares to know. and at one point a massive Hercules plane flew right past us, it was amazing. and then for the end we set off heading up the most dangerous road in the country the dreaded Snake Pass (AKA the A57) which took very long and was quite scary! in total we went about 100km climbing a total of 2500m (height of 2 Ben Nevis's).

One more thing for all you hardcore gamers out there. We met the real Gordan Freeman during our stay, bet your well jealous. check it out!

woah, bye.

Well done on the post pal. I thoroughly enjoyed it as i did the ride, just a pity i whinged so much whilst i were doing it (there were just so much hillage haha). Respect to Whitham and Josh for doing what is the most suicidal downhill ive ever dun with me. N also mad respect to Ben for absolutely knackering his face off on that insane uphill that killed him for the rest of the ride lol. Great times and I cant wait to see you guys again over the summer for some more riding ;)
