Harvey Hadden and the Erewash Valley Trail

Another city escape, this route in Nottingham includes stretches on both the disused Nottingham Canal and Erewash Valley Trail.

Distance - 12.1 miles

Beginning at the city’s Harvey Hadden Sports Village, you’ll make your way through the village of Strelly before joining the canal at Cossall.

You’ll spend a good chunk of the ride on bridle paths so off road tyres are preferable, and there’s even a chance to hone your skills on the 1.5km closed road circuit upon your return.
