Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
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.
