Cycle Routes with Access for All

Routes specially suited for riders with disabilities

At the heart of the Peak District is a network of converted old railway tracks that now provide accessible and enjoyable cycling for people of all abilities. Traffic-free cycleways like the Tissington and Monsal Trails are made up of mostly level, hard surfaces with easily accessible car parks, disabled toilets and picnic sites. The High Peak Trail has one or two steeper slopes, but these are clearly shown on the map and by signs in advance on the ground.

Along the actual trails are a number of cycle hire outlets with a range of specially adapted bikes, including tandems, trikes and wheelchair bikes. Some also have electric mobility scooters for hire, including Derwent (Fairholmes) in the Upper Derwent Valley. Here you can explore the hard-surfaced routes around the scenic reservoirs and, at peak times, even the tarmac road is closed to vehicular traffic allowing you to explore in peace and safety.
