Reviews for Dark Peak Mountain Biking
DPMB is a very high-quality volume and certainly far and away the best Peak guide we've come across.
A complete guide for the Dark Peak area of Derbyshire featuring 26 complete routes each lavishly illustrated with detailed maps and photography from John Houlihan and Andy Heading. The routes have been devised and tested by local riders and we think this is one of the best guides to the Peak District we have come across.
At last. At long, long last, somebody has written a decent guide to mountain biking in the Peak District.
There are 26 Dark Peak trails here, including my favourites and some I didn’t know. It’s really well researched and contains great photography that makes me want to go and ride there. What more could you want?
