Peak District Pioneer Adventure Cross

Peak District Pioneer Adventure Cross

May 21 2017
Derbyshire, East Midlands, UK
 

The Peak District Pioneer Adventure Cross is a classic British ride exploring the bridleways and cycle trails of the undulating White Peak area of Derbyshire. Mellow rolling countryside and picture-postcard views, combined with easy trails make for a fun relaxed early summers ride.

Bakewell is an ever-popular tourist town and is a gateway to some picturesque riding among the rolling limestone hills that give the White Peak its name.

Both the Massif and Mini-Massif routes leave Bakewell on the Monsal Trail and loop around High Rake and Longstone Moor before rejoining the Monsal trail. Then the route passes through dramatic (and well-lit) old railway tunnels before joining the Pennine Bridleway at Parsley Hay.

The route follows limestone tracks around the back of the stunning village of Hartington- true Peak District gem. In Hartington the Massif leaves the Mini route and completes a loop out to achingly pretty Tissington on a cocktail of lanes, paved and unpaved bridleways and moor roads. The routes reunite to take in a stunning limestone road to Gotham. Not Gotham City, more Gotham Hamlet- no sightings of Batman yet.

The route to Gotham promises to be a lot of fun on both MTB and cross-bikes, and a mix of limestone roads and old railway trails complete the return to Bakewell.

Prize / Race Categories

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing Award you achieved, will be displayed on the Website. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
