South Pennines and Peak District Off-road Cycle Map
The South Pennines and Peak District Off-road Cycle Map from Excellent Books concentrates on off-road, wide, rideable tracks for the adventurous leisure rider. The routes would also suit electric mountain bike riders.
Printed on tough waterproof paper, you will find:
- 14 epic circular bike rides along classic trails such as Cut Gate, Wessenden Valley, Holme Valley, Reddyshore Scout, Ladybower Reservoir and the Hope Valley
- 20 family trails including sections of the Calder Valley Greenway, Longdendale Trail, Tame Valley Trail, Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Sett Valley Trail and many more
- Cycle-friendly accommodation listings located on the map
The maps shows routes using the:
- Trans Pennine Trail
- Pennine Bridleway
- and a 110 mile ‘Pike to Peak’ circular route, linking the famous landmarks of Stoodley Pike near Hebden Bridge to Rushup Edge and Mam Tor in the Peak District National Park
The Pike to Peak is around 75% off-road and uses old packhorse trails and turnpike roads to take in some of the area’s most stunning scenery and attractive towns and villages. An ideal long weekend challenge!
