The A6024 out­side Holme is such a great road it was in­cluded in the 2014 Tour de France. But don’t worry, you can take ad­van­tage of its fan­tas­tic and test­ing bends with­out hav­ing to pedal up the hill.

Many riders choose to sim­ply go up and down this road, or the A635 that leads to it from Manch­ester and is just as much fun, but we sug­gest you throw the net wider and con­tinue to Bux­ton.

Once you have made it over the top of the hill (you can tell you are there when you see the trans­mit­ting sta­tion) the road drops down and winds and weaves to­wards the main A628, which leads into Manch­ester. Cross over this busy road and fol­low the B6105 and then the A624 as they take you around the out­skirts of the Peak District to­wards Bux­ton. When you reach Chapel Mil­ton you will be di­rected past Chapel-en-le-frith and onto the A6 to Bux­ton – ig­nore this route. By skip­ping around the other side of Wha­ley Bridge you can pick up the ex­cel­lent A5004 which of­fers a far more thrilling ride into Bux­ton. It is more than worth the slight de­tour and well few ex­tra miles on your bike’s clocks.

Great bends, great views. Per­fect rid­ing in de­cent weather
