Peak District routes
I asked the same a while back, got some very good responses:Posted 5 years ago
What’s yer favorite peak district ride? Done a little bit of walking round Ladybower area but that’s about all.
Looking to get a day in Wed/Thurs.
I did a forum search but nothing came up. I know there’s been this kind of thread before so feel free to call me a nobber and paste the link in if you like.
EDIT Probably somewhere people wouldn’t find a skeleton in 6 months time as I’m going solo.
Going out local now so if I don’t reply til later it’s not because I’m being ignorant. Cheers.Posted 5 years ago
I picked up some good advice on here, lots of threads.
There is lots of riding options around Ladybower, Edale, Hope. 18bikes in Hope have maps with suggested routes and guide books.
Personally of the three rides I did (Ladybower, Jacobs Ladder, Castleton) I enjoyed the one suggested by @pook the most, I rode this alone midweek – Edate, Hollins Cross, Mam Tor, Rushup Edge, Roych Clough, Coldwell Clough, Jacobs Ladder, EdalePosted 5 years agocrotchrocketMember
The one jumbalaya said “Edale Classic Loop”: clockwise from Barber(sp?) Booth is prolly my fav quick blast in the peak. (Virtually) No road & great views of the cement factory from Hollins Cross, I’ve ridden it alone a few times & mid week its pretty quiet but someone always wanders past eventually.
Although I did ride a few (new to me) bits nearer Sheffield last weekend – notably the descent off Stanage Edge, the Plantation, Devils elbow & some other singletrack nr a mushroom shaped rock.Posted 5 years ago

Slight hi-jack but what about the White Peak. Me and the missus are going to Chatsworth House on a saturday for a concert with my parents. We are going to stay over nearby so might as well try and get out for a couple of hours on Sunday morning.
Anyone recommend something down that way?Posted 5 years ago
