This route takes you from Glossop, over the snake pass, through some of the most beautiful parts of Derbyshire Peak district park, through the Chatsworth house estate (who remembers which TV series was filmed here?), down to Fish and chips at Matlock bath (note the parking restrictions). Before returning back through the Hope valley via Hayfield and to Glossop. There is some really good places to visit on the way e.g. the Blue John Caves, Chatsworth house, Howden Reservoir (the dambusters practiced here in WW2).

This ride has fantastic bends to start with down the snake pass (beware police cameras) before gorgeous countryside then ending with some nice twisties again along the A6 and the Hope valley. Go Pro camera is recommended.
