Worried residents were reassured once Kev had landed in Glossop at
around dawn. After devouring most of the contents of Tesco, Kev
confessed that he had been cycling since 1.30 am after getting
peckish and setting off in search of an open caff from his Sheffield
home. Some 36 miles of Peak off road later, our Kev was still looking
for a caff.

‘What day is it?’ He asked before setting off towards home via
Edale Cross and Jacob’s Ladder to complete his mythical mid-summer
Peak migration. If you find Kevin, feed him buns. Well done

Serious Version:

BIKEmagic member Kevin Hodgson last night began an arduous 67-mile
off road marathon around the Peak District.

Starting at 1.30 am from his Sheffield home, Kevin rode on
bridleways wherever possible, crossing Stanage on the venerable
Causeway and catching dawn from the saddle on Cut Gate. ( better than
catching, say scabies from the saddle, but that’s not in this

Arriving in Glossop at 7 am some 36 miles later, a battered but
unbowed and god-like Kev, professed himself ‘very tired’ before
tucking into a serious fried breakast.

‘What day is it?’ – 36 miles

20 or so to go.

He left Glossop around one hour later, to return to Sheffield via
Hayfield, Edale Cross and Jacob’s Ladder, finally arriving home at
around 1 pm.

‘I just want to sleep’, he commented, before going to bed. During
the ride Kevin used a selection of bike-mounted lights and two head
torches for supplemental illumination.
