Hope Valley Challenge

Hardest ride I have done so far, via Jaggers Clough, Edale and up Jacobs Ladder to Hayfield returning via Rushup Edge and takes in Hollins Cross (Mam Tor) on the way back.

Just 5 minutes (Top of Jacobs Ladder)
Totally shattered, not just from the climbs, but from the decents too, the only way to negotiate most of the very rocky trails was to pick a line going down, and pin it. You sort of skip from the top of one stone to another, get slow, the wheels start to track in to all the dips, and then it's game over.

Game over dude

Just a few yards after this gate I had a OTB moment, right in to the only large muddy puddle for miles around, at least it was soft.  Eddie was laughing too hard to remember to take a photo.
