VisitEngland is encouraging viewers inspired by Bradley Wiggins’ cycling heroics to get on their bikes and experience the Peak District National Park. If only Wiggins was a walker!
VisitEngland’s chairman and chief executive, among others, recently cycled through the Peak District to highlight the area’s recreational opportunities.
The group went cycling at Trentabank in Macclesfield Forest to showcase the 58 miles of off-road cycling routes and abundance of quiet lanes that the Peak District National Park has to offer.
The event was timed to coincide with National Parks’ Week, which the organisers hope will see more people get inspired to take part in recreational activity in a national park, whatever their age or ability.
I’ve nothing against cyclists apart from the fact that some are ignorant and most do not know the etiquette of the trails, let alone a sensible speed!
