Latest addition to the winter repertoire is Glapwell Trail built by Bike Track.
Location – Stockley Lane, Glapwell, Derbyshire, S44 5NA
Coming from Chesterfield, follow the A617, cross the M1 until you see the Plug and Feathers public house on the left. Turn down the narrow lane beside it, drive until you see a parking area on the left. Continue on your bike through the barrier down the main path for 100m until you see the entrance to the trail on the left.
Description – a 2km blue graded trail built to the usual Bike Track standard. Overall, a bit easier than either of the Lady Canning’s trails. Ideal as a family loop or a training venue. Undulating in the main, one short sharp climb, good short bermed descent.
Blacka Moor Permissive Bridleway
The bridleway from Stoney Ridge carpark to Piper House Gate, parallel to the Hathersage Road, is a permissive bridleway. It was until recently the subject of a winter closure to prevent erosion. The Wildlife Trust have decided for a trial period to leave it open and assess the impact. Please exercise discretion when using the trail and try to avoid it when conditions are bad.
