Afternoon derbyshire dwellers. Mrs Jek wants to visit her friend on Sunday who lives in Matlock and I shall be taking my bike so I won’t have to listen to their chatter before we come together again for sunday lunch out. I’m looking for a half decent XC route mostly off-road if it’s possible, as I’m sick of road riding for about 20 miles. I’d love the route to encorporate some single track, swoopy & fast as f. and I do love to ride through forests so if there’s any woods on way that’d be a winner.Posted 4 years ago
links to whatever website is cool or if you want to be super helpful & write me out directions, that’d be great.
Thanks all in advance.prettygreenparrotSubscriber
+1 for the PeliDeli – excellent looking HasBean coffee and really tasty sandwiches. Very good, enthusiastic staff.
@VickyPea, zipping down the high peak trail from Parsley Hey to the canal is not technical, but great fun.
There are some great old school XC ‘sightseeing’ rides from Matlock & the area. Going out to Winster and back round would be great, even in the rain. Well, except for some of the grassy bits in Darley Dale.Posted 4 years agowoody21Subscriber
Do you have access to garmin connect? Alternatively
There is woodland above Two Dales north of A6 and B5057 which takes you onto Eastmoor and Beeley Hilltop not entirely sure it is 100% legal. Also Bridleway near Northwood onto moorsPosted 4 years ago
@prettygreenparrot- how very dare you suggest that I’d recommend High Peak trail for an MTB ride! We did ride a few miles down the High Peak trail BUT that was just a warm up, we did a total of 24 miles, including climbing up onto the tops, coming back down for lunch in Matlock and climbing all the way back up again. I just can’t remember the actual route.
I don’t want the forum thinking I’m a canal towpaths and flat trails kinda girl 😀Posted 4 years ago
