Lovely day today with Hannah and Norn. Carols in the Cavern then carols with the Christmas Tree lightening in the village. Finished off my dinner at Pizza Express. Lovely Sunday.

I'm starting a new job next week today might be the last time in a while that I get to go geocaching during the week with my dad. The plan this week was to meet him at hope and we would make our way to Bretton via the abney Moor. I decided to run over to meet him so I didn't have to collect my bike later.
With a big rucksack packed and tired legs I actually did more walking than running but it was a overly morning although the wind was a little biting on the tops. But still means eight miles in the legs.
Caching was fun although less caches found than normal as I forgot to bring spare batteries. We were going to stop at the pub at Bretton but I was shut so we carried on home finishing in the dark.
I'm pretty tired now.

Apparently my pictures from my rides and cafe stop around here have been really tempting so we invited her down. Her and Hannah did a bit of gardening and then we went up to the longshaw estate for food and a walk. A drive around and then home for tea. A lovely day and good to rest my tired sore legs.

I met Anna, Carolyn and a couple of boys up on Curbar Gap and it was already a lovely day as I was pedaling up. We headed along Curbar edge but after that it was all new to me. It included Blacka Moor and some really tight singlet rack.
A perfect day but I was starving when I got home. Tired legs after lots of miles this week.
Yesterday stayed early as I was getting the 7:30am train from Grindleford. It was a straightforward journey to Horwich and I'm really enjoying the book I'm reading so it was nice to have time to read.
Arriving at Ros's the group was soon ready and we headed up Winter Hill. It was nice to be on the old stomping ground and it was a lovely day.
Back at ros's for lunch and then a pleasant couple of hours playing and cutting and sticking with the boys.
The journey home wasn't quite so straightforward piccadilly was packed and fortunately I got on the train as not everyone did. At Marple the train emptied a lot though and I had a seat. The last bit was riding home which made me smile. I love loving out here so dark and so quiet.

Ali's sister was visiting and she wanted some sister time so I went riding. A nice local loop including a new descent into Eyam. I also tried getting a picture of myself using the timer mode on my phone and discovered the Silent Heritage Site, maybe not the best place for me.

Greg came out from Manchester for a ride. I met him at Grindleford station and we made out way over to the Abney moors. The bridleway was hard going in the mud but fun. After dropping to Bradwell, I think I'm riding more of that descent we headed for breakfast via Silly Dale.
Then it was some playing round the quarries before back to mine. Thanks for coming out Greg.
