Hey all,

Just a quickie about rights of way and all that. I'm planning s jaunt out tomorrow starting in Edale, popping up Jacob's Ladder and along the pennine way towards Hadfield before getting a train home.

It's down on my OS maps as a public right of way but I'm aware there are some issue's regarding these with cycling. Does anyone know if this might apply to this route at all?

Advice much appreciated,

    Footpath no
    RUPP yes
    Byway yes
    Restricted Byway yes
    Bridleway yes

    Yes, my understanding is that anything except a designated 'footpath' is ok.

    'popping up' Jacob's ladder??

    you make it sound like going to the shops :)
  • I rode Jacob's ladder a couple of years back. In the summer. In a heatwave. made me vomit :shock: !!
    My Build is almost complete - I just need some wheels and pedals!
  • Cheers folks.

    'Popped' up Jacob's Ladder, lol, not an experience I'd fancy doing very often. Found my way round the legal bits fine (helpful "NO CYCLISTS" signs on the footpaths). Was having a whale of a time, some great descents, climbs etc until my bloody pedal fell off. I think the crank is buggered. Oh well. Not much you can do, packing a spare left crank isn't exactly standard fair.

    Lovely morning though!
  • hello, what OS map covers the area you did mate? Im from sheffield so maybe a good place to finally getting out on bike properly.
