PEAK­ING IN THE PEAKS

Mac­cles­field to Holm­firth

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Dis­tance 40 miles Why you should ride it If you want to know why the Peak Dis­trict is so pop­u­lar with rid­ers, then just fol­low this route. Start­ing at Mac­cles­field you take the in­fa­mous Cat & Fid­dle pass (the A537) to­wards Bux­ton, which is a bril­liant road to ride but one that is fairly heav­ily en­forced with speed cam­eras and traf­fic po­lice so keep your speed down. Once at Bux­ton the A5004 winds you to­wards Wha­ley Bridge be­fore the A624 and A6024 take you to Holm­firth. Th­ese two roads are ab­so­lutely won­der­ful to ride as well as chal­leng­ing, es­pe­cially on the run down to Holme so be care­ful and en­joy the views, not the speed. Fancy a de­tour? Nip into Bux­ton for a bite to eat and wan­der around.
