Overview: This part of the Peak District is not as popular with mountain bikers as others but contains some great riding that the masses are missing out on! This route is tough with a variety of trails and surfaces. The most technical of those are saved for the final off road sections. There are several pubs on route to tempt you and you will also be riding through three English counties in one ride too - Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire.
