Depends what you want but not my favourite. A bumpy B road with poor visibility in places, oncoming cars on the blind rise, a sheep drop and sometimes sheep. Biggest problem is the road goes no-where. Shitty roads and 30mph on the Homfirth side. Best to turn back after the hairpin on the Holmfirth side. Watch very dangerous blind junction onto A628.
Fantastic open road, good visibility, good flow to it.
Lovely road with great scenery. Very little traffic on it, wide open visibility for the most part enabling a great smooth flowing ride. Great corners
Lovely stretch of very twisty road at the Cromford end with good flowing bends and pleasant surroundings in the trees - one of the better roads around and miles better than the A6 for getting to Matlock from Buxton. Towards the Friden (Buxton and Ashbourne) end it gets boringly straight and you need to watch out for the Scamera van on one of the straights. Check slowitdown.co.uk before riding to check for Police presence before using.
Torside road is a cracker. Watch out for sand though. Not too keen on the Holmfirth road myself. Too many woolly things and a sheer drop on the one side of the road. Surface out of Holmfirth is third world. Also watch brow at the top. Seen head ons here due to some idiot overtaking on the blind rise.
