    cycling in the peak district

Why not take life in the slow lane? Whilst you're staying at Hoe Grange, one of the
best ways to take advantage of our beautiful local countryside is to explore by bike.

We welcome cyclists and with our farm nestled in the picturesque Peak District between
Ashbourne and Bakewell, there are lots of exciting cycling routes to explore.

The Peak District offers some fabulous circular cycle routes with varied riding terrain, many of which are practically on our farm's doorstep!
There are bike rides for all ages and abilities, so you can enjoy the spectacular views of the countryside as you pedal along.


If you want a leisurely family friendly bike ride you can avoid the main roads and steep hills by choosing one of the many easy-going trails.
For the more adventurous hard-core cyclists there are some fantastic iconic road routes and some challenging off-road tracks.
