Overview

There are many Peak District books on technical mountain biking, and the national park promotes linear routes along old railway lines. By taking its readers along ancient toll roads, packhorse trails and quiet roads, however, this guide aims to cover so much more than is currently available.

The Peak District, the UK's first and still its most popular national park, has a network of quiet back roads and gentle off-road trails that are perfect for cyclists. Stunning upland views are their reward for following these largely unknown paths.

Each route is graded for difficulty with factors such as distance, gradient, terrain and total ascent. Routes range from a short gentle trip around the canals and bridleways of Chesterfield to a multi-day 'Tour de Peak District', a 5-day homage to the famous French tour.
