This is an easy to fold out tear-resistant map that has been gloss laminated for protection. The Peak District is a remarkable place - from the north, the upturned horseshoe of high, gritstone moors and crags of the Dark Peak extend southwards to the east and west of the contrasting limestone plateau of the softer pastoral landscape of the White Peak itself incised by the valleys of the Derbyshire Dales. These differing landscapes offer some of the best off-road biking in Britain, from difficult, loose surfaced climbs and gnarly, rocky descents that test both nerve and technical skill, to ancient pack-horse trails, long grassy drovers' roads and converted railway tracks.The routes are graded: easy, moderate and more strenuous.
