This super traffic free cycle route runs from Derby to Worthington along National Cycle Network route number 6. Most of the trail takes place on traffic free, well surfaced paths so it's a lovely one for families or anyone looking for an easy flat ride.
The route begins in the centre of Derby near the train station and takes you along the River Derwent and Derby Canal path, passing Pride Park, the home of Derby County Football Club. The rest of the ride takes place on a dismantled railway path which passes Swarkstone, Melbourne, the Trent Viaduct, the Trent and Mersey Canal and the River Trent. The route finishes at Cloud Quarry in Worthington.
It's a lovely route with waterside sections and great views of the surrounding countryside to enjoy.
