If you’re a keen mountain biker looking for a challenge, take a look at the Steel Valley Ride.

The route covers 31 miles through the dramatic landscape of the Dark Peak, including the technical terrain across Cut Gate and Derwent Edge and some of the less travelled bridleways around Strines.

With over 3,500 feet of climbing it’s not for the faint-hearted.
