:twofin No, it's in the midlands (OK, so it's north to you) and it's surrounded by some of the best biking roads in the UK. It's also almost permanently full of bikers. It's just where bikers go


Matlock Bath is another historic tourist village in the Derbyshire Peak District – a mecca for photographers, bird watchers and geriatric types with handicapped placards displayed in their windscreens, not bikers. The area offers a few museums and some amusements! Matlock Bath even has a cable car to take you up to the famous Heights of Abraham for a wonderful view. Most of the local merchants, restaurateurs, and innkeepers favour the BMW/ Mercedes Benz type of clientele over bikers.
With it being in the Peaks District it is usually clogged with car traffic at the weekend, especially when the weather is nice…not to mention a strong police presence on the roads in the area!

I'll take the roads of Kent, Essex or Wales over the Peaks District any day.

Ah me thinks we have been spoiled!

Myself... I like Sussex to ride in... it's close to my home and it's just nice trundling through quaint little villages down to the coast....

I was last in the Peak District about 10 years ago and there was some beautiful scenery... I was riding at the time so didn't consider the roads from a bikers perspective really.... from what I remember it was quite hilly and the stone walls everywhere would be interesting if you had a "moment".
I was in the Peak District last summer and from my experience a "moment" most likely would occur only during filtering.
