Cyclists Welcome!

The village of Hope (1 mile) is rightly regarded as the epicentre of Peak District mtb riding. From Spring View you are on some of the classic routes such as circuit of Stanage, Ladybower loop and Mam Tor Classic with lung busting climbs that reward you with some of the best views and fun filled downhills in the country. The Bradwell Edge descent into the village is rightly regarded as one of the best technical descents in the area . For more gentle off road cycling, within a short ride on road you can access former railway line bridleways and the relatively level circuit of Ladybower and Derwent Dams. Alternatively the Monsal Trail is some 15 minutes drive, where cycle hire is available, and is a pleasant flat route through the beautiful limestone dales and recently reopened railway tunnels. Slightly further afield approximately 30 minutes drive are the High Peak and Tissington trails offering miles of former railway lines and forming part of the Pennine Bridleway which uses off road and quiet lanes to navigate the length of the Pennines.
