Derby Cycle Routes - Elvaston and Swarkestone

Two popular cycle routes starting from Derby city centre.


These are two cycle routes from Derby city centre which can be linked together to provide longer circular routes. The two off-road sections, the Riverside Path and the Derby Canal Path are suitable for the inexperienced rider and families with children - please note that the Canal Path crosses three roads so care must be taken at these points.
