Cheers for letting me know, figured I might as well some of the hotel points I have through work and treat the missus at the same time (cheap me... never!). Its not too far away from Ripley either, or Derby is even closer.... (obviously it will be shandies all the way prior to a cheeky drive through the peaks the next day :cheers )
Here come the girls.....

For those that are staying over in my neck of the woods, do you fancy meeting up Saturday night and go for a meal with me and mozz and the better halfs. I know a good restaurant/pub about 20 mins from where Jim and Bertijaffa are staying. Could even pop back to ours for a proper coffee :D

If it's not too late I have found we can make it and can join at Ripley, about an hour down the motorway from Leeds. 2 meals please.
We don't know the Peak District very well at all. It will be interesting to compare with God's Own County

It looks like my car will be good to go on this. Thanks for giving me a target to aim for :D .

I'm not sure whether I'll do the run or not (weather and smog), but I aim to be there for the start and for lunch.

Is there a TomTom ITN file for the route?
