    Just to clarify, the photo comp was going to be on 5th April (first Thurs in month), but this clashed with the extended Scottish Easter meet, we thought it best to move it back a week to April 12th. Thanks for raising the issue Frank and thanks for changing date Andy. Sorry for confusion.

    This is Bill re Sunday, Could be slightly damp but the forecast better than it was, maybe head for the Skyline area, bring big socks to go over your climbing shoes, still go for an early 9am start, walkers have managed earlier!

    Umm….
    According to the email sent out on 16th June from Bill’s account, the walk week starts on Sunday 16th, as climb week starts on Sunday 23rd
    Bike week was a bit shorter as it was Mike’s do at the weekend, although he did officially open it on Sat night. And bike week was the easiest of the three challenges.

    I cant find my original proposal email , but when we planned it all wallk week start date was Sunday 16th.

    Happy to go with collective decision – as long collective wisdom says it starts on Sunday!

    Good ride today, thanks Mary and everyone. Hats off to Dave P who did two rides today, between him and Linda they’ve clocked up almost 350miles

    depends on how our tally is going. Maybe double the mileage due to double legs and just double again as they do more mileage anyway. That way a dog only has to do 125miles to reach the 500 target.
    Sounds like an O level maths question: (Given the above assumption), how many miles does a person and a dog need to walk to clock up 500miles.

    ((Yes I meant O-level and not GCSE)

    Sorry, lap top expired. so cycle week has gone brilliantly, but walk week is more of a challenge….

    Here are the current events for walk week. I know some people have other walks planned , just let Mary know your totals. We may need all the help we can get. Not psure if dogs count, it may depend on the mileage we get!

    Sunday 16. climbers walking up to Shining Cough
    I am planning a run(ish) Buxton to Hayfield. If any one wants to link in with transport, let me know

    Monday 17 6.30pm. an evening walk around Ramsey Reservoir. 5miles. perfect for after work and people living \working in Chesterfield or Sheffield. More details to come.

    Thursday 20th:
    Lin W is leading a 6mile Thursday walk. see her message
    Linda M is leading a 18 mile boundary walk, Wildboarclough to Whaley Bridge. see her message for details

    Saturday 22
    I am leading a Southern boundary walk. as Dave C. has done the walk from Royston Grange to Thorpe and not given it a good review, This walk will be from Thorpe to Titteswoth -just under 20miles, but can be split into two sections, 8m & 11.4. More details to follow.

    a few of us are planning to go to the music and swim night at Hathersage pool on Friday 21 (a Linda challenge). this could be a gentle walk opportunity -if anyone is interested
    p.S. If you are interested in the swim, its a good idea to book tickets.

    if anyone lives away from the Peak District but would like to contribute , then we may have to temporarily extend the Peak District borders…

    happy walking -just remember to tell Mary your totals. every step counts.
