Much of the Peaks Circular route is on off-road cycle paths making it great if you want to build up your confidence on your bike before embarking on something a little more challenging.

When using these paths please take note of the signs and instructions, where the path has no line separating the pedestrian and cycle sides then please ride respectfully looking out for other users. Where there is a marked cycle lane please keep to it.
