The Tissington Trail provides a flat, traffic-free cycle route through the beautiful Peak District countryside. The picturesque, traditional Derbyshire village of Tissington is an easy three-mile cycle ride away with the end of the trail being a further 10 miles.
New routes have been developed to enable you to join up with other cycle trails in the area as part of the White Peak Cycle Routes (775kb) . The Tissington Trail also forms part of the 350 mile Pennine Cycleway to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
A short ride through the tunnel complete with railway sound effects brings you out in Ashbourne town centre where a range of pubs, cafés and shops are available. Ashbourne is famous for its Shrove Tuesday football match where the two halves of the town play one another at football with the goals three miles apart!
