Parsley Hay long ride (5 hours) - Hollinsclough and Chrome Hill, 28km
An interesting and varied ride on quiet lanes, easy bridleways and bye-ways. It is a varied ride on mixed terrain; a perfect introduction to off-road cycling. There are a number of climbs and gentle descents. The terrain is good but does contain some grass and stone tracks, however, these are not technical.
We will meet at Parsley Hay with its bike shop, cafe and toilets. Bike hire can be arranged beforehand, if necessary.
We will start with a quick 'M check' of our bikes and a chat about riding techniques, including gears, braking and riding position. After chatting through the route, we will set off. After leaving the High Peak Trail, the route climbs steadily on a mix of road and tracks before a long descent to Hollinsclough. From Hollinsclough we follow farm tracks, tarmac and the High Peak Trail, to return to Parsley Hay.
