Book of the month: Peak District Mountain Biking
- Tuesday 1 November 2016
As our cycle paths become bestrewn with autumn leaves and a chill blows through the air, we’re waving goodbye to long sunlit rides in the hills, but that’s no reason to hang up your helmet. November promises brisk mornings, golden woodlands and quiet trails.
To give you some inspiration, we’ve selected a route from our book of the month, Peak District Mountain Biking: Dark Peak trails, and made it available to download as a free PDF. Offering valleys covered in rocky gritstone tracks, open moorlands and miles of traffic-free trails, the Dark Peak covers the higher Derbyshire Peaks north of the Hope Valley, the Western Moors in the area of Buxton, and the Eastern Moors stretching south towards Matlock. Peak District Mountain Biking uncovers some of the finest and most popular riding in the country.
The route that we've selected is Ladybower Lite which offers 'a great introduction to the area or, for return visitors, a timeless classic worthy of many a visit. Challenging technical climbs and exhilarating descents are complemented by brilliant scenery – some of the best that Derbyshire has to offer'.
