This year’s Chesterfield Spire Spring Rides will be held on Saturday 13 April 2019. There are two versions of the ride, the longer being 67 miles in length and the shorter 53 miles. Both rides follow the same route to Monyash for a morning coffee stop. The longer ride then completes a circuit to the south of Ashbourne before arriving at Carsington Water for lunch. The shorter ride also heads to Carsington Water for lunch but takes a more direct route, using a 3 mile section of the Tissington Trail, before passing through Parwich. Both rides then follow the same route back to Chesterfield, passing through Cromford, Dethick, Littlemoor and Grassmoor en-route.

Both rides start and finish at the Wheatbridge Cafe, off Dock Walk, Chesterfield S40 2AB. The longer ride departs at 09:00 whereas the shorter ride leaves at 09:30.
