Ride over the new Matlock - Rowsley multi-user path Thursday 30 June 2016

Calling all Derby Rangers! You are cordially invited by the White Peak Rangers to share a ride with us over the new multi-user path from Matlock to Rowsley on Thursday 30 June. This essential link in the 60-mile circular White Peak Loop is being built by Derbyshire County Council as part of the Pedal Peak Phase 2, paid from central government funds. The MUP passes alongside the heritage railway Peak Rail’s line, from Arc Leisure to Old Road, Darley Dale. After a short stretch of not too busy road to Darley Dale PR station, the trail continues through the pretty Whitworth Institute park (with a heron if we’re lucky!), then alongside the railway again to Churchtown. From there, a 3-metre wide Toptrek-surfaced path leads to the Rowsley South station and the recycling center. Beyond that, the completed path plunges into a wood at Rowsley and includes a section of boardwalk carrying it over a swamp. There are sections of this which are not complete at the moment but you will be able ride over most of it. Meet 10:25 on platform 1, Matlock railway station (when the train from Derby arrives).
