Happy trails

Here’s another peak district ride video for Trevor in Australia, again recorded last Friday. This one is of the section of High Peak Trail from around Longcliffe to Parsley Hay Station, then back down the Tissington Trail to Tissington. This time all the action is in Derbyshire. The actual trail journey is around 22 miles and took a couple of hours – all on traffic free, well surfaced greenways that used to be railway tracks. This really is gorgeous riding on a beautiful day.

Derbyshire’s network of such routes is diverse and extensive, and they’re a huge tourist pull. If you’ve never been, you can drive up to the trail heads at Middleton Top, Ashbourne or Parsley Hay and rent bikes for the day to give it a go.

The music is a remarkable cover of Led Zeppelin’s classic ‘Stairway to Heaven’ by mexican duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and is absolutely joyous.
