Start Times, Lunch Stop and New Maps

The start times for the 2013 Chris Spin rides are:

The Long Stretch (52 miles) - Meet at Heatherdene Car Park by Ladybower at 10am to get going shortly after. Don’t forget £3 for the parking.

Short and Sweet (16miles) - Meet in Foolow at 11am.

A new lunch stop has been found after much searching in the village hall in Great Longstone. This has been booked for riders arriving from 12 onwards. Hopefully both rides will end up there together and then they can join up for the last stretch of the shorter ride back to Foolow.

Please bring £5 for the lunch stop.

The maps have been updated with some changes including a reverse in direction for the shorter ride.

Chris Spin 2013 – Long Course Map

Map for 2013The map for the Long Course on Sunday 26th May is now available.

The course is similar to previous years but with a new section from above the Winnats, across to Perryfoot and Peak Forest, and to Tideswell then Litton to rejoin the old route. This avoids both the rather gruesome climb up Pindale, and the nasty descent of the Winnats.

The short course route still to be decided but it will be a loop from Foolow as in previous years.
