Service Description

Our alternative Ambergate beginners tour does not use any dirt tracks and the climbs are less steep. The route follows a private track to the rear of the hub through old Industrial units and trees (the Birches) and out onto Holly Lane. A quiet and picturesque minor road follows part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Way heading south to Belper Lane End. The route joins the Old Derby Road at the Bulls Head and then travels up onto Alderwasley Moor until the lovely remote Bear Inn is happened upon. A refreshment may be enjoyed before retracing your route for a short distance until Jackass Lane is reached and you begin a slow downward coast into Ambergate via Holly Lane.
