Please note the change to our finish venue. Your controller will now be waiting for you at the Marple Social and Forces Club which you can find here (Google Maps) and here (what3words)

Stage four of the Wednesday Peak Grimpeurs takes us into the southern Peak District with its limestone scenery. Cafes at Monsall Head (overlooking the famous viaduct), and Monyash (via Asford-in-the-water, Lathkilldale, the Long Rake and Long Dale). Back to Marple via Wormhill and Eccles Pike.

Meet at Marple Memorial park (outside the library and near the public toilets) for a prompt 10am start. We've been asked not to use the library carpark, as it's in use all day by library users as well as visitors to the nearby Day-care Centre. There is a handily placed car park on Hollins Lane, just next to the fire station. Don't be late as we leave at 10 sharp, but if you're early, you'll find some of us in the nearby ASDA, or perhaps the Costa Coffee, having breakfast or just a quick cuppa.

The finish is at Marple Services and Forces Club .

If you ride all 5 of the Summer Marple rides in the same season, you can even get the badge!

Please note that we can't handle entries on the line, as we are starting from a car park, but it's really easy to enter the event, either online or through the post - just click on the 'Enter this event' button and follow the instructions.

There is also nowhere to leave panniers If you don't want to carry unnecessary luggage around the Peak District you can try asking a fellow rider to let you leave stuff in a car.
