The PDMTB all weather loop is a great ride all year around, but after a wet winter it merits are even greater. Due to the fact it is almost entirely a rocky route, it stands up incredibly well to the Peak District climate. With decents like the bridleway down into the Roych Clough (Pictured below) and the Classic Jacobs Ladder, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Today Peak District MTB, Keeper of the Peak and Ride Sheffield launched Cut Gate Conversations. To be blunt, I think this is brilliant. Cut gate is the jewel in the Peak District trail offering, we mountain bikers are leading the call for its protection and preservation. Being on the front foot, speaking with other users to see what can be done.
As many of you may know we are active within the Peak District MTB digging team. Organising, taking park in the dig days. Jeff has put together a great summary video of these years work. If you want to get involved get in touch or send us an email to
We think this is something of a of win win. Keep the mud out of your eyes and help to protect the trails that we all love. Our new Peak District MTB front mudguards are now available from Bike Garage, Bamford and Cafe Adventure, Hope. Only £9 (all profits are to go towards trail maintenance)
If you have ridden a Mountain bike in the Peak District chances are that you have ridden this route. The section in question is less than 2km in length cutting across the moors above Ladybower. It forms part of the Derwent Edge loop. But due to various reasons over the years the character and nature of it has changed.
