The Hope Valley Link is a scheme that provides a safer cycle route along the Hope Valley that separates
cyclists from the road along the A6187. This scheme is part of the Pedal Peak ll project funded by the
Department for Transport that will improve cycling for leisure and day to day journeys as well as
providing a boost for rural economies in and around the Peak District National Park.
This particular scheme is a result of a petition which was submitted to the County Council by Hope
Valley College pupils and staff for a safer cycle route along the valley, back in 2008.
The first phase of the scheme between Hathersage and Bamford was built earlier this year and we are
now looking at identifying the route towards Hope. We believe the cycle route will be of huge value to
the Hope Valley community and hope that we can work together to make this project a huge boost for
the local area.
Consultation with user groups is not just limited to cyclists and will include working with local horse
riding groups and other potential users of such a route. This will allow Sustrans and Derbyshire County
Council to get a better understanding of people’s transport needs when it comes to cycling and walking
etc., in Hope Valley.
In order for this project to be a success Derbyshire County Council and Sustrans need your ideas, expert
local knowledge and input to the scheme. We extend a warm invite to all residents and local
stakeholders from the Hope Valley and look forward to seeing you at our community consultation
