17 miles (27 km)

This ride in the Mansfield area takes you along National Cycle Route 6 from Vicar Water Country Park to Worksop. It's a fine section of the cycle network, running through Sherwood Forest Country Park and Clumber Country Park on nice traffic free trails.
The route starts at Vicar Water Park, just to the east of Mansfield. From the eastern end of the lake you can pick up Route 6 which runs pas Sherwood Pines towards Clipstone. Around here you follow woodland trails north through Sherwood Forest Country Park to Clumber Park. The splendid park contains over 3,800 acres of woodland, open heath and rolling farmland. There is also a beautiful serpentine lake and a picturesque avenue of lime trees that runs for 2 miles. The route crosses the lake at Clumber Bridge and continues north to Worksop where you can enjoy a waterside ride along the Chesterfield Canal.
You can extend the ride by continuing west along the signed route to Harthill.
