A short section that can be linked to other good routes to avoid the dual A50 carriageway when you have time to spare. An enjoyable stretch with some nice linked bends.
I rode this route in poor weather (heavy rain) but still found it really enjoyable. I didn't see any police, but would imagine it's a favourite one for their money raising tactics, as in the dry this road would be glorious. Some lovely bends, great scenery and some nice villages to pass through. Definitely recommended.
Some great roads and beautiful scenery. Plenty of refreshment points. Frustrating and unnecessary 50mph limit throughout, as in the whole of Derbyshire, but still a great ride. Busy with tourist traffic in peak holiday season, when police also patrol...
I found this route by chance before joining this site, as I was after a good non-motorway route for a work trip to Northampton from Derbyshire. This part of the route is superb and links well to the rout to Ashby de las Zouche. Ive ridden it twice each way, and love it. Havent seen any police, but may just be lucky. Watch out for caravans. Try it, its fun!
