My adventure for today was a bike ride through part of the Peak District. After borrowing a bike from Keith (a friend of my Aunts) I boarded the train at Derby for 1/2 hour to Matlock.

From Matlock I biked (again in the warm sun) just past Bakewell (about 12-15 miles one direction).

- stop at Haddon Hall
- biking along farms and fields and views of the Derbyshire Peaks
- Bakewell - stop at pub for a pint of bitter and the famous Bakewell pudding
