Coronavirus restrictions affecting Peak District mountain biking

The rules and guidance that state what we should and shouldn’t do to restrict the spread of Coronavirus are changing regularly. The introduction of a local tiered system makes it hard to provide general advice on mountain biking in the Peak District since the Peak covers so many different areas. As of 31st October several areas that overlap the Peak District have entered High Alert (tier 2), including the Derbyshire Dales, High Peak and Staffordshire Moorlands.

Many surrounding areas are in the Very High tier (‘tier 3’) and their residents are advised against visits to other areas (which is much of the Peak District).

The situation changes regularly, so we recommend you check the website to see which tier your riding area is in, bearing in mind your ride might span more than one tier. also provides the latest restrictions for each tier to help you determine whether to continue with or adapt your planned ride.

The Peak District National Park website has some simple guidance on visiting the national park during the Coronavirus crisis.
