Join mountain bike ride for beginners

A beginners’ mountain bike ride along the High Peak Trail is happening next week.

The 11-mile cycle takes place on Wednesday from 10.30am to 2.30pm, following the trail and Cardlemere Lane, an unsurfaced track.

The ride is mostly flat, but includes a challenging short climb and an exhilarating long descent.

Meet at Parsley Hay cycle hire centre, off the A515 Buxton to Ashbourne road, near Monyash.

Helmets must be worn, packed lunch and weather appropriate clothing needed.

Admission is free but donations are welcome. To book call 01629 816211.
