Five miles of new and improved cycling trails linking Hardwick Hall, Pleasley Pit Country Hall and Pleasley Vale are now open and ready to be explored this Easter, adding to the more than 460 miles of traffic free cycle ways in Derbyshire.
The new £550,000 trails are part of a project led by us to support local tourism and encourage people to get out into nature and explore their local environment.
Our Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Environment, Councillor Carolyn Renwick, said:
“We are delighted to announce the opening of Pleasley’s new and improved cycle trails.
“The project is part of our work to boost tourism and encourage people to get out into nature, explore their local environment and to make Derbyshire the most connected county for cycling in the country.
“We look forward to seeing the new trails put to good use by locals and visitors.”
