Sensational Sights and Stories: SMC's Spectacular Travel Tales - The Cat and Fiddle Road

The Cat and Fiddle Road in the Peak District is a beautiful and scenic drive that is not for the faint of heart. This winding road stretches for 11 miles and reaches an elevation of 1,690 feet, making it the second-highest road in the country. It is a popular route for motorcyclists who seek a thrill, but caution should be taken due to the sharp turns and steep drops.

The road gets its name from the Cat and Fiddle Inn, which sits at the summit and is the second-highest pub in England. The inn has a rich history and has been a popular spot for tourists and locals for over 200 years. Now well known for creating the finest Gin and Forest Whisky in Yorkshire.

The surrounding landscape is breathtaking, with stunning views of the surrounding hills and valleys. The road is also a popular spot for cyclists, hikers, and horse riders so please be wary when travelling through. 

While the Cat and Fiddle Road can be challenging to navigate, it is well worth the effort for the views and experience. It is recommended to take it slow and enjoy the journey, stopping at the various viewpoints along the way. Just be sure to bring warm clothing, as the weather can be unpredictable at higher elevations.

Remember, if you travel to one of these destinations please make sure you take loads of pictures and tag us in them on Facebook or Instagram! But most importantly, have fun and ride safe!!

Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
