    I'm planning a Ride over to Temple Normanton on Saturday via Buxton, Bakwell & Matlock Bath :cool: . Does anyone Fancy a Pootle out :?:

    I'll be heading off from Rochdale about 1100 so no mad rush, over through Oldham, Ashton, Glosop, Buxton, Bakewell down into Matlock, over to Matlock Bath then on to Bonds. Anyone not been over ther for a while will have a great blast it takes abot 2 hours each way plus a stop in Matlock Bath.

    Sorry can't do Sunday but should be a good old run out. 15 Minutes in Temple Normanton and back over the tops via Cat & Fiddle...........mmmmmmmmmmmm Nice :cool:

    Come Rain or Shine I'll be heading down. Any takers :?: Happy to collect folks on way as long as there m"Miles Out" :geek:
