Bike routes in Derby

Wed 12 Jul 2017

What better way to keep fit than a scenic bike ride in one of our parks?

Why not try the Riverlife Way route (a linear park) from Darley Park down to Borrowash Weir near Elvaston castle (approx. 6miles)?  This route takes in other parks like the River Gardens, Basses Rec and Alvaston Park.

Another good route would be the old canal path from Alvaston Park to Sinfin Moor Park (another linear park). This route takes in Harvey Road ball courts, Boulton Lane Rec, Hippo Park (playing fields) and Fullens Lock Park.

Stopping for a break? Make sure your bike stays safe. The best place to park your bike securely is at Bikeworks, located on Full Street. This is a free service. There are also plenty of bike parking stands throughout the city. You should always use a good quality lock to secure your bike to the stand.
