    Traffic free and flat route from Matlock to Rowsley following the route of the River Derwent and the Peak Railway (steam trains on occasion).
    Well surfaced although can be a little muddy in wet weather. One portion of the route near Whitworth Park follows the road (maybe quarter of a mile) but there is a pavement that can be used if no pedestrians.
    Two or three roads to cross so watch out for any youngsters riding with you.
    Rowsley has a car park (free). There is also a vegetarian cafe at Caudwell Mill at Rowsley but this will mean a short extra ride on the A6 or on the pavement (quarter of a mile?)
    Recommended as a ride for families or for those not confident about riding on the road.
