This is a fantastic route to ride either way around.I would say that any type of bike can be ridden on this and still get everything from it. It has some fantastic corners with good road surface ranging from long sweepers to medium twists. plenty of fast straights and enjoyable bendy cruising parts. This is best served on an evening when the rush has gone. get good at timing it right you can go and ride all of this and hardly come across any vehicles . however on a busy day... forget it you may as well of not gone out its terribly busy and not many overtaking places. Hope you enjoy it as much as i do !! Ride safe
Another one of my favourite routes in the area. Off the beaten track a little in some parts, mainly B roads or unlisted - just the way I like it. Generally good road conditions, a little gravel in places, a few sheep wandering around but overall ok and do-able on any bike. Some good scenery, but dont look for too long or youll be in a stone wall or hedge! Also, plenty of oportunity to get some air for those inclined! Part of the route includes Buttertubs Pass, not that well known. Quite a few spots to refuel the bike and rider or just to click away with the camera. Never seen the police on the route itself, but the approach roads are hot spots on weekends. The route takes in 4 popular biking stops for anyone who wants to check out bikes and have a chat.
This route takes you from Glossop, over the snake pass, through some of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire Peak district park, through the Chatsworth house estate (who remembers which TV series was filmed here?), down to Fish and chips at Matlock bath (note the parking restrictions). Before returning back through the Hope valley via Hayfield and to Glossop. There is some really good places to visit on the way e.g. the Blue John Caves, Chatsworth house, Howden Reservoir (the dambusters practiced here in WW2).
This ride has fantastic bends to start with down the snake pass (beware police cameras) before gorgeous countryside then ending with some nice twisties again along the A6 and the Hope valley. Go Pro camera is recommended.

I have tried to link up a few other routes on this website to make a lap of good roads, Im sure that in places it could be altered to make it better, having just ridden it but you have to go through some villages and towns. very enjoyable ride, set aside a full day to do the trip.
