The scenic Peak District boasts an abundance of country lanes, tracks, towpaths and railway trails that are perfect for two-wheeled exploration. This guidebook presents 20 graded day rides in the national park, along with a challenging 250km route, the five-day 'Tour de Peak District'. With a focus on quiet lanes, gratifying downhills and not overly technical bridleways, tracks and trails, the routes are ideal for gravel/adventure bikes (or hybrid/cross), though most can be easily adapted for road bikes. Each ride features step-by-step route description accompanied by 1:100,000 mapping. Overview stats are provided to aid route selection, along with details of refreshments, parking facilities and cycle hire, and full accommodation listings for the Tour de Peak District. The guide also includes tips for cycling the routes and advice for novices. Easily accessible from Sheffield, Manchester, Huddersfield and Stoke-on-Trent, the Peak District is famed for its big skies and rolling moors. These carefully chosen routes showcase some of its best bits, from the picturesque Derwent Reservoir (particularly resplendent in autumn) to wide views from the old Mam Tor road. With rides to suit most abilities, what further inspiration do you need to discover this beautiful area?
