Walk around Wirksworth

3-4 mile walk and lunch.

The plan is to meet in the Co-op car park (big, free) on Harrison Drive at 11.30am, walk up to Bole Hill hamlet and continue up to the trig point on Bole Hill, then drop down to Black Rocks and the High Peak Trail. Follow the trail past the Rising Sun (at which point people can head for the pub if they wish) and on up to the Middleton Top Cycle Hire centre where ice-creams can be purchased. Follow the trail then cut back through the fields and quarry and down Green Hill to Wirksworth, from where cars can be picked up or people can walk a further 10 minutes up to the Rising Sun for lunch at around 1.30pm.

    I'm SO sorry, I completely screwed up. I'd got this on my phone but the phone died, and I'd got it into my head that is was a couple of weeks from now! Anyway... no excuses, I'm an idiot and I let you all down. So so sorry.

    Excuse my lack of computer literacy, but how do I get the 'good to see you' slogan on my profile, so I can send it! I am just trained up to be good at other things!

    Pleasant company. Great walk in beautiful countryside. Hope the mountainous hills weren't too strenuous! Lunch at The Rising Sun - to be recommended.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
