    7.75 miles, 2,175 feet, 1 hour 53 minutes, Wansfell ridge. Busiest day since lockdown started - a couple of dozen on the fell, about a dozen cars in the P+D car parks, lots of motor bikes in groups. Super weather!

    Stayed at home most of the day, made some Rhubarb and Ginger jam and creosoted a shed. After the hoards had gone home went for a glorious evening bike ride, 30 miles and 3,200ft out to Millers Dale, Tideswell, Great Hucklow, Eyam, Foolow, Great Longstone, and back home via Sheldon hill.

    The views from The Barrel at Bretton over to Stanage Edge and Kinder were fantastic in the clear evening light, just a shame the pub wasn't open.

    The roads were quiet and I saw only 3 other cyclists but the car park at Monsal Head was still full at 8pm!
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    6.4 miles, 2,451 feet, 1 hour 44 minutes, Wansfell Pike, race route to the kissing gate, back to the top and down. Only 7 on the fell. Another super day weather wise.

    Early breakfast and on bike for 9 miles up to top end of reservoir carrying rucksack and fishing tackle, sandwiches etc.
    Fished, caught trout, climbed back up hill to bike hidden in forestry, cycled 9 miles home.
    Had fresh trout for tea
    Ring-a-ring-o-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tishoo! a-tishoo! we all fall down.

    Managed a 1 mile come back from a calf tear, after the inevitable 3 week layoff.
    It was directly the result of council lunacy forcing me to use hard footpaths instead of parks , and instead of off road tracks closed by selfish landowners with no right to close them.

    I’ve discovered over the years that the only way to recover from a calf tear is total stop for 3 weeks.
    Come back sooner and it reoccurs maybe not on the first run, but inevitably in the first couple of weeks.

    Yes. That’s what was making me miserable!
