Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

This is a figure of eight loop, mainly on road, which starts from Hassop Station near Bakewell. There are a couple of small climbs but nothing to worry about and the ride is approx 8 miles in distance.

After meeting in the car park at Hassop Station, we head out onto the main road before quickly turning off onto a quieter road and head towards Great Longstone. We will turn off the road here and head up past the church then follow the road to Hassop village. Here we rejoin the main road and continue past Hassop Station down into Bakewell. Just before the bridge we turn left and follow Coombs Road then join the Monsal Trail for a short section back to the cafe at Hassop Station.

The route is best suited to hybrid type bikes.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don't have one please do not to worry you can still take part. If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then.

We will be stopping for a well deserved coffee and cake so please bring some money.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and you'll need to bring a drink, snack to keep you going, spare inner tube and puncture repair kit.

If you have any questions for more information on all of our rides please see our Facebook page Breeze network Derbyshire

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Christine Dicken
    Christine Dicken I've been riding on and off for about 12 years, initially for commuting and now purely for pleasure and exercise. I'm not the fastest or the fittest but I get there in the end and enjoy the journey! My cycling habits have been curtailed over the last few years following the birth of my son but I'm thrilled that he now has developed a love of cycling and I hope to help other women to enjoy cycling and encourage their children too.
  • Helen Gregory
    Helen Gregory I have been cycling on and off throughout my life. I love riding my bike but am too slow to ride with my husband and his mates, so am looking for some ladies to ride with socially! As a child, I loved the sense of freedom and adventure I got, whenever I went out on my bike and that feeling has never really gone away. I hope you'll join me to pedal and chat, stop for a drink, maybe a slice of cake, and gain some fitness and friends along the way!
