Starting point

DE45 1BU

Coombs Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1BU

Our meeting point will be about half way along Coombs Road where the houses end (there is free on street parking). We'll ride along to the end of Coombs Road where we will join the Monsal Trail (this is a quiet residential road). We push our bikes up the small incline onto the trail. We'll then follow the trail to Hassop Station and beyond. We'll head towards Great Longstone station and even on to the Headstone Tunnel if people are keen then retrace our route back along the trail, stopping at the cafe on the way back. This is an ideal ride for beginners or those wanting to ease themselves back into the saddle gently! There is always the opportunity for coffee, cake and a chat at Hassop Station cafe so bring some money. The ride will go ahead whatever the weather so it's a good idea to wear comfortable clothing and lots of layers are better. Gloves too! It's a good idea to wear a helmet although if you don't have one, then don't let this put you off. If you don't have a bike, then the new Bakewell Bike Hire shop has now opened opposite Felicini (01629 815077). Hope you can come along!
