Cycling is a great way to explore the countryside.

Great cycle trails in the area including the scenic Manifold Trail and a circular route around Carsington Water.

The Churnet Valley cycle route runs for 4 1/2 miles from Denstone to Oakamoor and is perfect for families. It’s nice and flat as it runs along the old railway track.

Well worth a visit is the Monsal Trail. It follows the route of the former Midland Railway 8.5 miles through stunning scenery from Bakewell to Blackwell Mill Cottages not far from Buxton. Download a copy of the Monsal Trail route.
