    Another 'Back to Tarmac' day together with the best lanes the Peak Park has to offer.

    Come and be noticed.

    The Peak Park website at http://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/news/current-news/uk-national-parks-are-actively-yours2 gives details of a national promotion called Actively Yours:

    "UK national parks are ‘Actively Yours’

    That mountain: it's yours to climb. That coastal path: it's yours to wander.

    That sweeping moorland, that pristine river, that tranquil forest -- they belong to you and to all of us. They are ours to explore.

    'Actively yours… to enjoy' is the message of National Parks Week 2013, which takes place from Monday July 29 to Sunday August 4.

    Chairman, Tony Favell added: "The weeklong celebration ends with a fun packed activity day at Castleton visitor centre on Sunday August 4. People can join in and find out what's great about the Peak District National Park."


    Now that the Peak Park have shown that they DON'T welcome us (TRO soon on The Roych) and that they think the lanes are NOT ours to drive, we thought it would be nice to turn up in force and join in the fun on Sunday 4 Aug.

    There will be a GLASS/TRF presence in the visitor centre car park in Castleton all day from 09.30, so come along and say hello. There are plenty of great lanes to drive/ride in the immediate area - Chapel Gate & Roych (quick before they are TRO'd), Brough Lane, Bamford Lane, to name a few.

    It would helpful if there were lots of 4x4s and trail bikes moving slowly up and down Winnats Pass, filling up the car park at Castleton and driving slowly (because it will be busy) through Castleton, Hope and Bamford to let everyone know that the Peak Park is ours also and that the Greenlanes are for everyone.

    Suggested route for local lanes - leave Castleton Visitor Centre car park - head up Winnats Pass - Mam Tor road to Edale - up Chapel Gate - west to Rushup Edge - down The Roych - through Wash to Sparrowpit - back to top of Winnats Pass - left onto Dirtlow Rake - down Pindale - to Brough and up Brough Lane - Abney and on to Bamford via Offerton Hall - up Bamford Clough - past Stanage Edge (on tarmac) to Lady Canning's Plantation - along Houndkirk Moor and back though Hathersage to Castleton.

    Help and advice for those unfamiliar with the area from GLASS and TRF in Castleton Visitor Centre Carpark

    See you there on the 4th.

    Bump, it's tomorrow!

    I've had a new batch of 'green lanes for all' tabards printed, I'll be selling these to raise money for the PDVUG fighting fund. 10 quid each, I'll be on a blue KTM Adventure. Come and say hello :)

    Bit of a long shot but, does anyone know if marsh performance is still on the go, the numbers that I have managed to get from the net are no longer available, trying to get hold of Swampy.
