This little run was taken in a bit more style, comfort, power and sereness in my gorgeous LS400.Again leaving Swinton and driving past Nigel’s house, we stopped at Worsley courthouse for a quick piccy before joining the M60 for ride out to Bakewell.Just outside Hazel Grove we hit traffic to the start of a new A6 bypass, which I’d never seen before.I turned right for the old A6, but it’s not there anymore so we ended up doing a scenic tour through Pott Shrigley to Macclesfield (home of my birth) then over the Cat and Fiddle to Buxton.Another quick stop for a picture then on to an absolutely heaving Bakewell village.A leisurely light lunch and Bakewell slice and s walk along the river then off to Matlock Bath.My partner’s never been before and couldn’t believe the amount of bikers all lined up having a brew and chat.It was too late for Crich tram museum so we headed for home, but another pic at the Swizzles factory at New Mills.Another great ‘classic’ day out, twice the miles covered and we were a lot more relaxed than the last trip in the Wartburg.
