Thanks to everyone who took part on Saturday – it was a great event and one of the best ever.
I have added a few photos here.
I only got a few so if anyone else has any, can you email me on alan [at] rockfax.com
Also, I think there were a few stories this year since I kept hearing about punctures and split tyres but I am not sure who they happened to so if you have any stories, please email those as well and I will include them in the report.
And don’t forget the donation page!
The maps for both course are now available.
They are in a single PDF document – Chris Spin 2016-Course Maps

The 10th Chris Spin is planned for Sunday 3rd May 2015. Put the date in your diaries!
We did briefly contemplate ditching the ride and just having the lunch but in the end we decided that we should probably do the ride as well. So it will be the same course as the last few years.
The start times for the 2014 Chris Spin rides on Sunday 4th May are:
The Long Ride (52 miles) – Meet at Heatherdene Car Park by Ladybower at 10am to get going shortly after. Don’t forget £3 for the parking.
The Short Ride (16miles) – Meet in Foolow at 11am.
The lunch stop is once again in the village hall in Great Longstone (please bring £5 for the lunch). 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.
The maps are available for download but we will also be marking out the tricky sections of the course with arrows this year.
Eyam Road Collapse – The road beyond Eyam on the long ride has collapsed and is closed to cars. We rode it last week and you can get bikes through.
The maps for the rides are available for downloading.
The courses are the same as last year only this year we are hoping to put a few signs up to stop people getting lost.
