The Peak DIstrict
In 1951, The deep-green valley’s and gritstone and limestone crags of the Peak District became the first region of England to be protected as a National Park, and today cyclists flock to the vast playground in search of adventure.
Located in the heart of England and accessible from London in three hours by train or three and a half by car, the Peak District serves up characterful rides which combine the best of Britain's natural scenery and heritage.
"Cyclists can enjoy the picturesque climbs and panoramic views of Winnat Pass, Burbage Moor and Holme Moss. There are also historic locations to visit, such as 16th-century Chatsworth House, situated besides the River Derwent and the seat of the Duke of Devonshire."
The Peak District’s alluring blend of nature and history is perfectly encapsulated in the Eroica Britannia vintage cycling festival 15-17 June. More than 3,000 cyclists dressed in old-fashioned clothing ride classic bikes, before indulging in the festival’s music concerts, barn dances, sundown cinema screenings and street food.
