A very enjoyable mainly flat cycle walking or running route free from the traffic of modern day living. Part of the old railway lines shut by Beeching many years ago. Ideal for the handicapped fantastic views of the Peak District

What a great day cycling. The staff at the bike hire centre in Ashbourne were brilliant and extremely helpful. Thoroughly recommend it.

Just as accessible on a mobility scooter as on a bike or on foot. Which is wonderful as there are a very limited number of trails that are. Loved it.

Sorry, I don’t know for sure but you might like to check the hire centre. It’s at Parsley Hay. Just google it and it will give you all the details. It appears to hire what you want but best you check.
