    Starting from the heart of the Peak District National Park from the historical city of Derby, your first stage of cycling the Pennine Cycleway will lead you through varied landscape – from industrial constructions, along quiet traffic-free trails and through rolling countryside.

    Leaving Derby city centre can be tricky, so you may want to turn on komoot’s navigation here. A former railway track will lead you out of the city and onto calm country lanes that rise and fall through the green landscape.

    At Ashbourne, you will cycle through a tunnel which brings you onto the Tissington Trail. This 13 mile (21 km) stretch will guide you through stunning Peak District scenery. The route gradually leads uphill before flattening out on the outskirts of Biggin village.

    Here, you could consider a detour to Hartington, a village known for its cheese-making tradition, and stock up on locally made cheeses and chutneys.

    Your final destination of the day is Parsley Hay village where you can find comfortable accommodation, a cafe, and a bicycle hire shop.
