Not suitable for cycling (at least not for a while) but there's an old footpath alongside Hawke Brook that's been used for generations to gain access from Clowne Road, to Church Road, although it's a lot less used these days than 30 years a ... [more]

Old path from Clowne Road to Church Road than runs alongside Hawke Brook, a lot more overgrown and disused than it was in the 80s!

Former Shuttlewood water treatment works. Possibly a way of forming a connection to the old Oxcroft Branch Line and then onto Seymour from the Oxcroft/Bolsover area

Site of former Shuttlewood water treatment works, all been flattened now, but the old track to the site remains, and could provide access to Mill Lane/ the former oxcroft disposal point site.

Old lane up to Bentinck Road. The terraced houses were built for Oxcroft Colliery, and the lane was used by the miners to get to work until the colliery closed in the 1970s.

Trail on Bolsover pit tip

Bolsover Colliery tip, some nice trails on here, plus great views of the Castle

Well used path between fields, off of the official public footpath

Track parallel with Woodhouse Lane but behind the tree line.

Drainage channels under Woodhouse Lane. There is/was an underpass here, it was filled in after the landscaping of the former pit tip was completed.

Why Shköder, Albania, is a cycling city - bikes were introduced by the Swedish consul in 1907. The only real infrastructure is plentiful parking, but that's enough for a strong cycling culture to survive.

Montpellier Station

My commute through Kings Norton park one Sunday morning

Oh the irony! A Turkish airline suggests going to the Netherlands to enjoy cycling. Because virtually no-one cycles in Istanbul. (Approximate location)

Trike rides offered by the beach

Church Road looking towards Shuttlewood Road

Church Road towards Stanfree. An old lane in need of some TLC

Church Road, a decent surface here

Path on Church Road, needs improving to make it easier to cycle on.

Overgrown pathway on Church Road, flatter than the proper path which has deep ruts but needs some TLC to make it easier to bike on. Unfortunately this lane suffers due to motorbike use.

Path along hawke brook used by local people, would be nice to see it as a proper walk

Track leading up towards A632 /arkwright /bridge. Not currently accessible on the bike, but could be a great alternative in time.

Trail looking towards Duckmanton

Looking towards the busy A632 and well constructed bridge made for the opencasting

Clearance under bridge on busy road. There's steep banks of earth on either side of the bridge though

Bridge at busy A632 road, a good few feet of clearance under the bridge, on both sides. The bridge could be opened up and used as part of a cycle trail.

Access onto Longcourse Lane

Trail between Duckmanton and Arkwright

Current path at side of busy A632 road, obviously well used by local dog walkers etc

Bridge on A632 at Arkwright, the bridge which replaced an old railway bridge, was constructed during the opencasting of the area and relocation of the village, allowing access under the road. It was filled in underneath after the opencastin ... [more]

Path heading towards Poolsbrook from Seymour / Netherthorpe, can get quite muddy other side of gate, but there's a better way by going left immediately after the ballast and staying in front of the fence until access opens up a little furth ... [more]
