Went for a ride out this morning on my favourite route from Disley to Whalley Bridge, Chapel, Edale loop to Hope and then Castleton to Winnats Pass then headed down towards the Yondermann Cafe on A623. There were loads of bikers there and some very interesting old bikes. The sun certainly brought them out. Nice brew with friendly people. Too early for the heart attack special as I'd not long had breakfast at home. Then took the back roads over to Buxton, Congleton and Macclesfield and back to Disley. Lovely route dry roads and slightly overcast so not cooking in the leather jacket. Tried out my new Hood jeans - brilliant. Nice to see English firms producing quality gear. Lots of people out on motor bikes, push bikes, walking, open top cars - perfect English weather for being outdoors. Back home to lube chain and remove bugs splattered over helmet and bike.

I did the cat and fiddle and decided to head towards Matlock too but it starting looking very miserable so turned around and as soon as I got near the cat and fiddle again the weather was lovely. I also washed the bike and the car and as soon as I put everything away it started raining! Need to get a ride out sorted considering we take similar routes.

I am out down to Raven and then up to ponderosa tomorrow Pip. Just not sure what time though.

I think it will probably be an early start and get back for dinner
