    having said that. loads of walkers will still slow you down and reduce the enjoyment

    Don't you know that this is is a footpath and bikes are not allowed on here?!

    Yeah, crazy isn't it!

    Then highlight the kinder trespass and that I'm just taking the lead from the walkers.

    Or just practise your Scottish accent and plead ignorance.

    We only did about 4.5 miles, but it's part of the Pennine way so it's possible to do a hell of a lot more.

    I realise it is a LONG way to do it all, just wondered how far you went and how long it took you... Was it a there and back or a loop?

    We just did there and back but it could easily be done point to point or looped. Starting from Cowgreen reservoir and following the river east would be the best way to do it IMO.
