Nice scenary that runs by the Ladybower reservoir, mostly good road surface. A thoroughly nice ride at differing speeds depending on your ability. Be aware that there is some police presence and this has probably increased since this road was mentioned in UK magazine RiDE as a favourite route.
Now this is a nice back route. Right across some reasonably high moors with some great hills, tight bends and interesting scenery. A real must. Do not expect to get to much in the way of speed. This is another type of riding. Not to be missed.
Now this is a road and a half! If you like little back routes this is perfect. The section I have shown is quite short - about 1 mile - but is brilliant. It really requires good riding skills especially on a reasonable sized machine. The road surface is in part large stone blocks on a particularly steep road. You really need to have your wits about you to be able to do this well. It is slow and grippingly interesting. I use it for a route from Derby to the NW. Not a speedy route but keeps you nicely off the boring roads.
A really good selection of straights and corners that should put a smile on your face, highly recommended
This route offers a nice variety of sweepers and tight corners. Beware that there can be some police presence here as the police use part of this route for training.
