Rocks and roots

Doctor's Gate

By far the most mental descent in the Peak District! It starts with a climb, and even some carrying. It eases you in gently and then suddenly there's some mental switchbacks and so it continues with some terrifying exposure and occasional 2 foot step ups. It definitely doesn't flow, but it is still amazing, all the way to the bottom. The only disadvantage is it's a real hassle to get to the top (A road....) and incorporate it all in a sensible ride.
