Reid Anderson climbs Gun Hill
Reid Anderson climbs Gun Hill

The Permanent version of the Staffordshire Peak Calendar event with one slight difference - there are no Info controls so we just drop into Bollington for a shop receipt.

This ride climbs all the way (except when you are descending steeply) so you will need good legs and even better brakes, but the views are well worth the effort.

See Kettleshulme, the Goyt valley, Axe Edge, the Manifold Valley at Wetton, and the Mermaid. Be warned that it's quite isolated in places (except perhaps Tittesworth on a sunny weekend) and exposed, so make sure you carry suitable clothing and have some bonk rations in your saddlebag.

The return to Marple via Meerbrook and Gun Moor, Kerridge and Bakestonedale.
