FROM THE NORTH Peak prac­tice

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Riding -

If you take this route to the Fes­ti­val you will al­most be tempted to turn up late be­cause it is a fab­u­lous ride! The run out of Holm­firth on the A6024 is a joy and then when you cut through the Peak District it gets even more spec­tac­u­lar. Loads of rid­ers are at­tracted to the no­to­ri­ous Cat and Fid­dle, but other roads are qui­eter and more fun to ride. Mat­lock is great to ex­plore and the fi­nal few roads are quick but not overly chal­leng­ing, so you’ll ar­rive re­laxed but happy.

The view­point on the A6024 that over­looks Holm­firth is truly stun­ning. Com­edy pic­tures us­ing the metal pic­ture frame are a must…

Stop for a cuppa at: There are loads of cof­fee stops in Bux­ton, just don’t make a de­tour to the Cat and Fid­dle pub at the top of the A537 – it’s shut!

Watch out for: The Cat and Fid­dle Pass is no­to­ri­ous for ac­ci­dents and there­fore at­tracts po­lice to this area. While this route avoids it, speed cam­eras are still ac­tive in the area.
