The Peak District in General
The Peak District is mainly in Derbyshire but extends into surrounding
counties. Amongst the attractions are Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall
and gardens, Eyam (the plague village) Hall and the Caverns in the
Peak. There is something
for everyone, walkers, climbers (gritstone edges such as Stanage, Birchen,
Froggatt, Curbar and bouldering), sightseers looking for stately homes,
museums, or stunning scenery, gardeners, steam railway enthusiasts
and families looking
for theme parks. Geographically, it is divided into two regions, the
White Peak and the Dark Peak.
The Peak District has a wealth of quiet minor roads suitable for cycle touring. Several of the disused railway track beds have been converted into cycle trails, perfect for family groups, disabled cyclists and occasional cyclists. In addition, there is plenty of off-road action for both inexperienced and experienced mountain bikers on fantastic singletrack, bridleways and other tracks.
High Peak Trail
There are plenty of places to join the trail which is a
dismantled railway (see the High Peak Trail page for more information
about the Cromford and
High Peak Railway). You can start at the Cromford canal junction (3/4
mile incline to get you warmed up plus a shorter but equally as steep
one to get to Middleton Top!) and go almost to Buxton. For a flatter
start, you could go from Middleton Top which misses out the main climbs
or start at the Buxton end. Parsley Hay and Friden are also popular
Another dismantled railway running from Ashbourne to join the High Peak
trail south of Parsley Hay. You could make a longer circular ride by starting
at Ashbourne, then head SE on the High Peak trail from Parsley Hay, coming
off at Middleton Top or Black rocks and return to Ashbourne via the roads
and assorted bridleways.
This runs from Waterhouses to Hulme End and passes through the valleys of
the river Hamps and Manifold. Off road trail and minor road cycling. Passes
the Thor's Cave and the Ecton Copper mine, following the track bed of the
former narrow gauge Leek and Manifold Valley Light Railway.
Sustrans is the national UK charity dedicated to the promotion
of sustainable transport, getting people out on foot, bike or by public
transport. Sustrans has organised a large number of cycle
routes nationwide. Some make it easier and safer for cycle commuters
whilst others follow mainly quiet roads and bridleways to enable cycle
tourists to enjoy their exploration of the countryside. Each is signposted
is possible to obtain the maps for a small fee from the Sustrans web
site at http://www.sustrans.org.uk.
All monies support the work of this charity. Some of the key sustrans
cycle routes open in (or near to) the Peak District are National Route
6 from Leicester to Sheffield, National Route 54 from Lichfield to
Little Eaton and National Route 68, The Pennine Cycleway (which continues
north from the Peak District right up the Berwick-upon-Tweed. You can
