Tackle the famous hill climbs in the Matlock/Derwent Valley area.

Matlock and the surrounding area is steeped with road biking hill climb history: Bank Road, Riber Road and Rowsley Bar to name just three of the well known ‘infamous’ ascents. The Matlock Top 10 celebrates the richness of the areas steep, 20% plus gradient hill climbs by creating a route that ascends 10 of them in just 61.5km/38 miles. That’s 1750m of ascent or 5741ft in old money.

For those looking for a slightly less extreme challenge then the Matlock Top 4 is for you – 31.8km/19.76miles based around the same route as the Top 10 but climbing just 4 of the 10 climbs
