To the west of Sheffield lies the Peak District, an awesome destination for mountain biking in the UK.
To reach this Tour, you can easily hop on the train from Sheffield which has rail connections to Hope. You set off from the Café Adventure in the village. As the Tour also ends here, you can tuck into a delicious cake or hearty sandwich and enjoy a coffee before heading home.
But first, it’s time for adventure! You can expect 19 easy kilometres (11.8 miles) of up and downhill riding which are anything but boring. Again and again, you ride along varied single trails with great views over the surrounding countryside. Following trails named ‘Ladybower Woodland’ and ‘Hagg Farm Descent’, you follow a flowing descent down to Ladybower Dam. Here, at the very latest, you can enjoy a well-earned break complete with epic views.
If you want to extend your ride, you will find endless great trails in the area if you keep your eyes peeled. Alternatively, you can simply cycle back to Sheffield.
