Peak District – In the heart of England
Close to the urbanisation of Sheffield and Manchester, this very special National Park has always provided a haven for the working people of Britain’s industrial heartlands.
Edale has a unique place in our countryside access history, being the venue for the mass trespass that led to the opening up of the paths that we all now enjoy.
With epic trails, winding bridleways, and hidden limestone valleys, the area has something for everyone,including some of the best access routes and post riding facilities.
LINNET CLOUGH – EASY 12.5 MILES
An interesting excursion into the hills, on the fringes of Manchester, which opens up the wild terrain of these hills.
LADYBOWER LOOP – MEDIUM 16.5 MILES
A great route which turns most of the roadwork into a warm-up and finishes with the memorable descent through the heather above Cutthroat Bridge.
MAM TOR – MEDIUM 12.4 MILES
A rollicking eight around the Hope Valley. Cave Dale is one of the techiest descents around these parts so be ready to hang on tight. The route across Mam Tor to Hollins Cross and down to Edale is sublime.
HAYFIELD TO HOPE – HARD 24 MILES
An unforgettable sweep of High Peak goodness, with rolling tracks, great climbs and descents on awesome rocky trails. One to test the best climbers.
CUT GATE – HARD 39 MILES
Rolling, tight, technical, steep, fast and fun, Cut Gate has it all. It can be a mountainbikeneering trip in poor weather, but when the sun shines, you’d be hard pushed to have a better day out.
HOPE VALLEY – HARD 30 MILES
It’s a full day epic, with steep climbs, fast and technical descents and some great views along the way. Weaving around the Hope Valley, it’s a route to test anyone. Take care on the Cave Dale descent.
