    Circumnavigating the Devils Arse!

    It's true, as I lie here sweat stinging my eyes on a barren mountain on the hottest day of the year I can reveal that the Devils does in fact have two cavernous arses.

    Fried day, pie chips and mushy peas twice.
    My belly thinks my throats been cut.
    Fuck the pies, give me crispy cod.
    Four hours and sanctuary is in sight.

    Time for some escapism from the madness of the world.

    Today's mountain bike madness, nearly died of heat stroke.
    Five hours of technically difficult riding around the top of the Edale valley, the epicentre being the Devils Arse.

    Early start and no one about, the sun is shining...lets have it!



    Starting point is on top of Mam Tor, bloody breezy up there..



    Up i trundle with a 500mls of water..



    At the top of Mam Tor with the stone path stretching out as far as the eye can see.



    Found a less technical grass route slightly lower down, argg ruddy sheep everywhere..



    If your not totally focused on the next 2 metres in front and take your eye of the rocks and holes for a nano second then.....

    12 foot over the side into a nice soft bramble bush, still picking the splinters out of my arse.



    Bike still in one piece, i'll survive but i'm sticking the the stone path for now.
    Waters gone and it's getting hotter than the Devils Arse after a Vindaloo and bowl of Som Tam...

    Guess who?


    A terrifying white knuckle ride to the valley below in search of sustenance.
    Brakes on full skidding down the grassy 40% slope, lumps and bumps everywhere.
    I'm not going to meet thy maker today.



    Sanctuary from the heat and raging thirst,NOT!! Left my wallet and money in the car.



    Old school village of Castleton..



    It teased and taunted me all day but i didn't succumb to it..



    Hot as hell and making my way back to the car on the other side of the valley i started to flounder, so took a few more pics on my rest stops that were getting longer and longer.

    No hope for cyclists here, ramblers only.



    No hope for this poor bleeder if Punty was about, what is it?



    Plenty of multi cultural sheep in these parts..



    Starting to meltdown now, buttercups anyone?



    90% Meltdown, shit i've got to pick the kids up from school in an hour.
    Give me that 2lt bottle of water and bunch of bananas in the car.......Ppllleeaassse.

    Oh yes, orgasmic..



    Enjoy.

    CCC

    Cheers for that Slap.
    A whole Saturday to myself that would be a rarity, may have to arrange some baby sitting.

    Cheers for the thought Nev, did it save itself for me?

    Unfortunately not, natural hallucinations were the go.

    the grain is going down nicely now, must rehydrate properly
