Our group's second led ride for the public took place last Sunday (3 July) on the Monsal Trail and was a total success. Meeting at Hassop station, Robin took us through the "ABC" bicycle safety checks before handing over to David Gray who gave us an excellent commentary as we rode northwards on the Midland Railway route which is now the familiar cycle trail. We passed through three of the long, lit tunnels and stopped at a number of points of interest, where David explained features of the railway, lime kilns and history of the surrounding area. We stopped for an ice cream at Millers Dale station, before heading back to Hassop.
