This guide to journeys within the Peak District National Park contains a series of cycle routes which are suitable for the family as well as the serious rider. The routes vary between 10 and 30 miles, and several may be linked together for longer trips. Sketch maps are provided, but it is suggested that these be backed up with the Ordnance Survey 1:25000 map The White Peak and The Dark Peak. The use of tarmac surfaces has been minimized whenever possible. Descriptions of each journey are supplemented with background information on points of interest and pubs and inns to be encountered en route. Several of the trips have been chosen based on suitable car parks, while others allow transit from one railway station to another. A list of cycle hire centres is given at the back of the book.

'An Ill-founded Monopoly' was a submission to the Draft General Policy National Parks Act of August 2003. The submission argued that mountain-biking was a healthy, unintrusive, and nonpolluting outdoor recreation, compatible with the fundamental principles of the National Parks Act 1980, especially Section 4, which stated that parks should 'be maintained in natural state, and public to have right of entry'. Therefore, it argued, the General Policy should recognise mountain-biking as a permissible recreation within national parks, on designated tracks..
