We’ll make no apologies about this route. It’s long, it’s tough, in wet weather you’ll lose the will to live on it and it’s not for the faint hearted. 300 kilometres of prime Peak District tarmac, gnarmac, dirt and gravel. Ladies and Gentlement this is the Velotastic 300.

Ideally done over a couple of days (one if you’re hard, three if you enjoy your cake stops), the Velotastic 300 takes you over some of our fave trails in one big loop.

The route starts at the ranger station in Linacre Woods, Chesterfield. This is only 3 miles from the local railway station, so there’s no excuse to bring your car.

The route is lumpy to say the least. If you are planning on doing it over 3 days, we’d recommend you stay in Castleton and Hartington, two we’d recommend either Buxton or Hurdlow which are little bit off the route.

There’s plenty of cafe’s on route to chose from and we hope you manage to visit a few to support our local economy. If you do have a crack at this route don’t forget to use the hashtag #velotastic300 in your social media feed !
