About

Medium route for leisure cyclists   

Distance: 8.5 miles north loop; 18.7 miles south loop

Explore the rolling Derbyshire countryside taking in the timeless Georgian architecture of Ashbourne and visit traditional estate villages.

Starting from Ashbourne, famous for delicious gingerbread and the annual Shrovetide football match, cycle southwards through picturesque villages taking in the thatched cottages of Osmaston, where you can still see lakes in the parkland of the former Osmaston Manor.

Cycle along the scenic traffic-free Tissington Trail, a former railway. Take a breather in Tissington, famous for its well dressings in the summer and stop to admire Tissington Hall, a fine Jacobean mansion. As you head back towards Ashbourne along the quiet lanes of the Dove Valley take in the views of the tranquil landscape with its patchwork of dry stone walls.
