Ride Report - Bolsover Castle
On a bright Sunday Morning 9 Club members, joined the 52mile/83.7km ride out to Bolsover Castle
The route started off lumpy as we headed up Royds Moor and towards Kiverton Park. Once over the busy A57 we hit quite country lanes through Clowne and onto Bolsover. Once into Bolsover we did a loop around the castle climbing Bolsover Hill and headed towards the Café stop at The Harley Cafe in Notcutts. After the Café stop we hit the county lanes again passing through Whitwell and Shireoaks before re crossing the A57 and back onto our local county roads back to base for 12:30pm.
This was changed from the advised café due to Sunday opening hours but it was a disappointment with great service and a wide selection of refreshments on the menu.
With no big climbs we stayed as a group the entire ride all taking turns on the front, the pace was high and controlled with some great group riding.
