To launch the new cycle route, which centres around The Avenue Country Park, the developer is giving away up to four brand new bikes for any home reserved at the housing estate before the end of the month.

Regional sales and marketing director for Kier Living Central Lizzie Burda said: “Wingerworth is a wonderful location set in the heart of Derbyshire’s finest countryside and we wanted to help village residents and visitors enjoy the area safely.

"The past twelve months has made us appreciate our local area and now anyone who reserves this month will be able to enjoy family bike rides without having to travel in their car first.

"This offer has been extremely popular so far, so we’d encourage anyone interested to visit us soon to avoid any disappointment.”

The route centres around The Avenue Country Park.
