Peak District Cycling

Discover cycling in the Peak District National Park. From family trails to a challenging climb, beautiful summer scenery, to winter mud and grime. From road warrior or mountain bike, to seasoned pro or a child on a trike. Learn what to take and where to go, whether clocking up the miles, or going slow.

Discover route ideas for Peak District cycling, such as the railway trails, including the Monsal, Manifold, High Peak and Tissington Trails, and challenging hill climbs such as the Cat & Fiddle and the Brickworks. Read detailed Peak District cycling route descriptions, maps, photographs and action videos of rides and events that have taken place.

Many of the rides featured are circular loops, giving you an opportunity to view the best scenery the Peak District has to offer, such as the Edale Valley and Winnats Pass, the Brickworks, (as recently included in the Tour of Britain) and the Goyt Valley, and one of my favourite loops, taking in the remains of Throwley Old Hall.
