Sat 1pm Club Run - Millers Dale

Sat 1pm ride to Millers Dale - 10 of us set off for the new PDNP cafe at Millers Dale which has just opened. Our ride took us over to Algreave via Ridge Hill and Meg Lane. From there we cycled up to Flash and then onto Longnor where Dave L peeled off for his cafe stop. Our climbs then took us up Crowdecote over to Monyash. We thought we were making pretty good time until we encountered a herd of 247 cattle on their way to the milking parlor! This held us up for a good few minutes as the cattle seemed quite happy munching the road side verge. We eventually arrived at the recently refurbished station at Millers Dale where we met up with Roger. We had called ahead to warn the cafe and they had reserved us a table - I can certainly recommend this as a cafe stop. Afterwards we returned to Macclesfield via Wormhill and Buxton where I dropped off and the rest returned via the Cat n Fiddle. We did 45ish miles with almost 5000ft of climbing.
