    Today, you will ride 30 miles (50 km) further through the history and nature of the Peak District National Park from Parsley Hay to Hadfield.

    From Parsley Hay, the route continues along traffic-free cycle paths that gently rise and fall through the landscape before ascending into Harpur Hill. Take care here, as the windy roads can become busy, especially during rush hour.

    Next, you will reach Buxton, a pleasant spa town often described as “the gateway to the Peak District National Park.” Make sure to stock up on plenty of water and snacks here as a gruelling climb on uneven road surfaces awaits you as you leave the town.

    The route then joins hilly Peak lane. This glorious stretch will take you through magical countryside with barely any cars in sight.

    At Whaley Bridge, you will follow the Peak Forest Canal, once an important industrial waterway, as it merges into the River Goyt. Then, the route turns away from the river and heads into green farmland before arriving in Hadfield, the final stop.

    A former industrial hub for weaving and spinning, Hadfield has many restaurants, cafes, pubs and places to stay.
