Our Sponsored Riders, Julian Page and Robert Day, have been out again riding round Carsington Water in Derbyshire.
Its a 2 mile long Reservoir between Ashbourne and Matlock. The trail is about eight and a half miles long, with a good surface.
It "undulates" with some gentle hills and ends up crossing the dam. There is a visitors centre with cafe and toilets -but its "pay and display".
Next to the centre is an island with a stone park -that is worth a cycle round. The car park to the North near Sheepwash is free.
