We went for a cycle ride on the Monsal Trail – a picturesque abandoned railway line which runs through Bakewell in the Peak District. Today is the start of the 'Eroica Britannia' meeting whereby thousands of cyclists take part in a three-day festival, ending on Sunday with a ride on the trail. The only stipulation is that in order to take part you must be riding a bicycle of pre-1987 date and be dressed accordingly! For more information on the Eroica Britannia, click here
In the meantime, here is a field of buttercups alongside the track.
