The Tour de France may have come and gone, but we are delighted to say that cycling is here to stay in the Peak District!

The Peak District already has fantastic cycling routes on miles of traffic free trails and quiet country lanes. There really is no better way to take in the wonderful views, pretty villages, local history and great wildlife on offer.

There is an excellent choice of cycle hire at locations throughout the Peak District, including the Upper Derwent Valley, and the Monsal, High Peak and Tissington Trails. All abilities and ages are catered for, with electric bikes, wheelchair cycles and buggies, so no one gets left behind!

Just this week, Derbyshire County Council have announced that planning applications have been submitted to extend the Monsal Trail from Bakewell through to Matlock. This is part of “Pedal Peak ll” an exciting £7.5m project to create four new routes for cyclists and walkers through the Peak District National Park.

We can’t wait to get on our bikes!!
