Cycling in the Peak District - Off-Road Trails and Quiet Lanes is a guidebook for the leisure cyclist, mountain biker and family rider. It is for the cyclist who values fun, good views and lunch stops over grimaces, a racing heartbeat and aching legs. It is a book of enjoyable cycle rides. Eighteen routes, between 9 and 23km in length, explore the traffic-free lanes and off-road trails of the Peak District. Taking in quiet roads, dedicated cycleways and some of the more amenable off-road riding in the area, the routes explore every corner of the Peak; limestone dales, open moors, gritstone crags and tiny villages – they're all there. Never too long, too difficult or too remote, they are great fun and are challenging for riders of all ages and abilities. The guide also includes suggestions on where to ride with children and a section on where to ride along dedicated cycleways away from the traffic. Written by local riders Tom Fentonand Jon Barton, the rides are clearly described using step-by-step instructions and feature original maps, route profiles and local information.
