Derby is a great city for cycling. It’s flat (well, almost), compact and has plenty of easy to find on and off road cycle routes.
As well as being cheap, quick and fun, cycling is also great for your health and well-being too. So why not give it a go… you might like it!
Five miles can be covered on a bike in less than half an hour with very little effort (unless it’s a five mile uphill climb!) so most areas of the city are well within a 30 minute ride. The fitter you get, the quicker you’ll get. An electric bike will even give you an added boost to let your legs have a bit of a break.
Cycle Derby has been at the heart of cycling in the city since 2005 and has helped to make Derby a really great place to get out and about on two wheels.
