    Here are the timings

    Routes: if you can't make it up join us for a leg

    Buckfast Barn to Loomies 8 to 9am

    Loomies to Oxford 9-40 to 10-50

    Oxford to Lime Kilns 11-10 to 12-40

    Lime Kilns to Ashbourne 13-20 to 14-40

    From there we might go straight to pub or go via Matlock Bath depending on how people feel.

    I suggest arriving at meeting points with enough fuel to get to the next one, ie fill up before you get there if needed.

    Unless you're going to Matlock Bath for the Museums I wouldn't bother. I think you'd be disappointed. It is/was a week end bikers meeting place with free parking but I believe it's all 1 hour parking meters now.
    Do you know any more about this Tiglet Dave ?

    Looks like it's parking meters now and at Bakewell.

    I could never understand what the attraction is with Matlock Bath, apart from Kostas cafe for breakfast if I was passing through ;).

    Ashbourne stop is only an option as it's the reg 90 mins and stop plus I think it's the last fuel stop
