Ride and Ramble – ‘green’ way to explore Peak District
Ramblers can suss out the bus or let the train take the strain with a new Peak District walking guide aimed at cutting car-pollution.
The “Ride and Ramble” book offers the ‘green’ way to roam, with 20 linear walks through beautiful Peak District scenery, all linked to buses or trains.
Walkers can either opt for the totally-sustainable route there and back, or park their car and take the bus or train to the start-point, then ramble back.
They can use the book’s free bus timetable to plan their days out and at the same time help the Peak District environment.
“Ride and Ramble” uses an extensive network of rural Derbyshire bus and train services serving the Hope Valley, Buxton and the Derwent Valley.
It is produced by Peak Connections, a partnership project to provide “days out” across the greater Peak District using public transport, and the book is part-funded by the Peak District Sustainable Development Fund.

“Ride and Ramble” costs £6.95 from visitor centres in and around the Peak District or online at www.nationalparks.gov.uk/pdshop
