Route Highlights

For those who joined us in previous years, you can expect big changes to our shortest route with the elimination of a risky descent and improvements that mean it’s more family-friendly than ever. There’s never been a better time to sign up the whole family to enjoy a safe, fun and stunning ride through the Peak District.

Monyash

Setting off from the Festival start-line at Friden Grange, you’ll pass through Parsley Hay for the first of two visits during your ride by heading north and looping around to Monyash Picnic Stop for some light refreshments. Take as long as you (and the kids!) need before hopping back on the bikes and taking on the second half of your mini-adventure.

High Peak & Tissington Trails

You’ll pick up the High Peak Trail and meander down to Parsley Hay again where you’ll aim your compass south to the Peak District capital of cheese in Hartington, a new village for 2018. If you’re feeling peckish or thirsty, call into the local cafes and shops where you’ll be welcomed with open arms. Another new village for this year follows shortly after at Biggin where you’ll join the Tissington Trail for a leisurely roll to the High Peak Trail. End your family outing back to the finish line at Friden Grange along the High Peak Trail and soak up the atmosphere at the festival site for the remainder of your stay with us.

A bit more adventurous and requires reasonable fitness. Several long climbs will give you a stern workout but the descents are glorious.
