Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Interesting route and very suitable for families as completely traffic free and relatively flat. Used to be an old railway line so gradients are very gentle.
Crushed stone surface suitable for all bikes.
The tunnels on the old railway have been reopened and lit so you can now walk or cycle through them. Bike lights aren't necessary but might be useful to stop other cyclists crashing into you!
Great 1 day ride for all the family. We started at the Bakewell end (parked at the farmers auction site/ cattle market) as the trial goes ever so slighty uphill from there. Doing it this way made it easier to cycle back as it's then slighty down hill. We then went into Bakewell village for a bite to eat before setting off home.
