Chris Spin 11 June – New Long Course

We have a new course this year forced upon us by road closures on Froggatt and Stanage. It is a little shorter than the old course and no less scenic. For those familiar with the old course, the change happens after Eyam Edge where we drop down William Hill and then use a smaller back road to cut across towards Hathersage. From there, a steep climb up to Dennis Knoll rejoins the old course just before the final descent under Bamford Edge.

Chris Spin – 11 June 2022

After much careful deliberation, we have planned the 16th Chris Spin for Saturday 11 June 2022. We can reveal the course to be the same as previous years with a short and long option. At the time of writing the much anticipated lunch venue remains under wraps and will only be disclosed at the last minute. Don’t believe any of the rumours about it being at Haddon Hall or Chatsworth though!

If you are interested then let us know by submitting an application form. If you want to keep in touch to decide later then send us an email and we will add you to the mailing list.

Chris Spin 2019 Report

Thanks to everyone who took part in the 14th Chris Spin. It was another great year with over 20 people taking part over the two courses. The weather threatened at times but we never suffered more than a few drops of rain and it was calm and warm for the most part. The good conditions contributed to what turned out to be the fastest ever completion of the circuit although it was a close run thing. At one point we were 12 minutes ahead of the previous best but in the end we just made it by 70 seconds! The new lunch stop was a success (and added a few km to the length).

Nick Arkle Passes Away

There was some sad news last week when we learnt that Nick Arkle had passed away. Nick had been with Chris Spin since the beginning back in 2006 having work with Chris for many years in Rotherham. Everyone who has ridden a Chris Spin will remember fondly Nick’s very welcome presence at Mam Tor and the top of Froggatt where he dispensed welcome drinks. He will be sadly missed. His funeral will be Monday 8th April, 3.30pm at Grenoside Crematorium South.
