Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
This was once the main road into Castleton which was built up onto the side of Mam Tor. Unfortunately due to the local geology the road began to subside almost as soon as it was built. Repeated shorings up didn't help, and eventually the road was abandoned in 1976. It presents an almost unique challenge for bikers in the UK; it really feels like you're navigating a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Until you spy the ice cream van at the top, at any rate.
