Pedal Peak District
Cycling in the Peak District National Park is a gentle way of improving your health and well-being, and riding on our traffic free cycling trails with gentle gradients surrounded by beautiful countryside is much more fun than pounding the treadmill at your local gym.
Bring your own bike or hire one of ours at our cycle hire centres near Ashbourne town centre, Parsley Hay on the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton road and Derwent right next door to our Fairholmes visitor centre at Derwent.
A range of bikes are available to hire and include mobility scooters, electric bikes, tricycles, hand-cranked and wheelchair bikes at some centres. Why not hire a tandem and share the load?
All cycle hire centres are near to popular bus routes so why not leave the car at home and make a real traffic-free day of it?
The Peak District is home to fabulous off-road cycling routes including Monsal Trail with its tunnels and viaducts, Tissington and High Peak Trails which meet at Parsley Hay and the quieter Manifold Track in the south-western Peak running from Waterhouses along the old Leek and Manifold light railway line.
