Mountain Biking Highlight
Road Cycling Highlight
Planned by The Outdoor City Sheffield
For those Sheffield dwellers who live a little further south, the Peak District can be accessed via trails in and around Ecclesall Woods. These trails are also an excellent return route into the city for anyone who has headed out through the parks – it’s certainly far better than spinning just on tarmac!The route is essentially pleasant riding through woodland, particularly when the autumn turns the trees a mix of yellow and orange, and in the spring when the bluebells dominate. No, it's not too technical, and as a result it's also a popular blast for night riders. The route leads to the link up to/from Hunters Bar roundabout, which is a popular meeting point for mountain bikers from the city.Important Note: There are plenty of bridleways and footpaths running close together in the woods; please keep to the bridleways only!
