This day’s diary entry reads like a travel brochure. What an interesting and extended day, more suited, I should have thought, to a summer excursion than a mid-December outing. Charlie’s enthusiasm for cycling shines above all the negatives (like lots of steep hills) he encountered on this particular outing. He certainly brings the Peak District to life including details of the Great Plague, and Robin Hood’s right hand man, Little John. We are very fortunate to be able to read of his travels and thoughts first hand.
