White Peak Mountain Biking is the fully revised second edition of our bestselling guidebook to the southern Peak District, and features 24 routes from 10.5 to 45 kilometres in length, suitable for riders of all abilities.
A companion guidebook to the bestselling Peak District Mountain Biking – Dark Peak Trails, this guide shows you the best of the White Peak and includes four new routes and several updated routes. Clatter down tricky limestone descents, dodge roots on twisty woodland singletrack and cruise along easy cyclepaths through green fields and pretty villages. Explore Bakewell and Matlock, Macclesfield Forest and Buxton, and nip into the Dark Peak in the Hope Valley.
Researched, ridden and written by a local rider, each route features Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions and details of distance, timings and difficulty. Also included is a Bonus Section listing top ten climbs, descents and singletracks, information on family riding (including the Monsal Trail) and a detailed Appendix.
White Peak Mountain Biking is now also available as an ebook for smart phones, tables and Kindle devices. This digital edition adds downloadable GPX routes, zoom-able Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps and weblinks to local pubs, cafes and bike shops.

'It is great for mountain biking packed with excellent trails, and picturesque scenery.'
– Bike Maps
'Vertebrate have been in the design game long enough to be market leaders on this front. It is compact – 172 pages that feel more like 100, but at the same time do not feel flimsy – and fits in the pocket easily.'
– Matt Heason
'I have a number of books in this series and they are all really well written, illustrated and put together.'
– Amazon reviewer
