    As there has been minimal interest in GO APE I’m proposing a change of plan to UNDERWATER CYCLING!! It’s curre ntly possible to cycle to Derwent Village, usually underwater in the reservoir. We’ve had a short trip today and it was fascinating so the new plan is meet at Yorkshire Bridge pub at 10am. Length of route to be determined by participants, weakest link, probably me, will decide, although the fitter members could do their own thing after the visit.
    I used a mountain bike, Vanda a hybrid and they were fine. Depth of mud depends how brave you want to be but minimal is possible.
    Let me know if you’re interested.
