About The Rides

Listed in the two volumes, White Peak Mountain Biking and Dark Peak Mountain Biking, by Paul Evans and Jon Barton, are 19 Enduros, which the authors say are big, tough rides ... challenging routes that you might describe as a bit of a beast.

These are the most challenging rides in the Peak District encompassing loose stones and shale or large rocky steps that vary from moderately to extremely steep downhill.
