Cycling in the Amber Valley

Pedal Power

 

Cycling

 

Cycling is a great way to explore the countryside, take up exercise and to get around.  Derbyshire is the perfect place to pedal for pleasure or on your daily business - everyone can have a go.
 
Derbyshire Country Council is developing a network of traffic free routes, or Greenways, around the county linking communities and countryside.
 
In Amber Valley the Ripley Greenway allows you to cycle along surfaced pathways through traffic free areas.  The Greenway links to the end of the new section of the National Cycle Network Route 54. 
 
The Nutbook Trail links Shipley Country Park to Little Eaton along designated cycle paths and a circular path around Shipley Country Park allows a journey through scenic county park environment, providing the perfect location for new cyclists of any age.
 
For those wanting to take in the sites whilst taking things a little easier, a network of electric bikes are located around the county.
