Laning

I would have a look but at the moment I don't have a truck at all that is any where near roadworthy or in one piece.

Need to resolve that first or I ain't coming.

I have purchased a digital copy of tor with the peak district info so anyone who can convert it into a usable format memory map etc please let me know and I will send then a copy.

Stretch, what happened to the list of grid refs I pm'd you? They just need transposing onto memory map if you have it, I don't use memory map so can't send you the overlays. Some of the lanes were included in the TOR route, which I have a paper copy of, I can scan it if anyone wants one. I have offered to lead a group, if necessary, but we will need another leader or two I would imagine to keep group numbers down. Whoever else who wants to lead a group can contact me for info if they wish. It is a sensitive area and is likely to be busy with other users at this time of year. Sadly most of the challenging lanes now have restrictions on them too.

Hi i still have them and after the 1st april i will count up numbers to determine how many groups/leaders we need. Thank you for your offer and yep would like to have you as a leader of one of the groups. I don't have memory map but like i said happy to pass info onto someone who does.

Did go out for a few hours up there end of Feb and revisited some of my old routes round Buxton. Could do with having a look round Matlock / Ashbourne for the second day but don't like driving new lanes solo really, but will see if Trailwise can lend some info.

OK been looking at lanes as I have had an easy day, I have found a route that is not too far from the campsite. I use viewranger as it's cheaper for maps I have found. Here is a link for the lane http://my.viewranger.com/route/details/NzExNzA=

Any lanes in the peaks are bound to be good lanes! It's a similar shape to the route I did but mine had a few around matlock area as well. But I'd say nearly 90 miles is enough for a days laning lol

Nice find that. I have a route that starts just north of Wincle and also heads up to Castleton, in fact you could head across almost to Sheffield.

Sorry I've been lurking in the sidelines all this time but now I'm here . Me and rob have worked out 2 routes , an easier one for Saturday allowing a later but not late start and a more technical one for Sunday which will mean an early start as it goes further afield , taking in Stanage Edge (YouTube it for a taster).
We'll try to run 2 staggered groups allowing us all to meet for lunch. Day 2 lunch is at a picnic site so pack your butties (there is a pub just up the road for Andy lol).
Without sounding bolshy I want to make one stipulation. AT tyres at a minimum please or I cannot take you. We've had issues in the past of people on road tyres causing the group to be stuck on the 1st lane for 2 hours. Anyone who only has road tyres please just ask for a ride along with someone.

Unsure whether Stanage is open as it was going under the knife to make it a flat (though inclined) road.

Could myself and the misses politely ask for a few well placed photo opportunity stops on both days? I'm not talking setting up the tripod and flash guns kinda stops, just 5 or 10 mins to take in the surrounding kinda stops every so often? Also we're bringing a gas stove so if people want to bring bacon and rolls with them we don't mind doing the cooking if we find a nice spot to stop for a snack (thinking late breakfast kinda thing before we stop for a 'proper' lunch?) no point going all that way if we're not guna stop to have a look :P

As per Robfrogs post, it is now tro'd along with roych clough, chapel gate and tenterhill. Monsal head is also under review but still driveable as far as I know at the moment.
