A MAIN route to the Peak District has been named Britain's worst death trap for motor- cyclists.
The A537, which leads from Cheshire towards Buxton, and another three roads around the spa town have made a list of the 13 most dangerous accident sites for bikers.
The area is popular with motorcyclists because of its spectacular scenery, winding roads and long straights.
The report by the AA Motoring Trust pointed out that many bikers fell victim to the roads because they were challenging.
However, it concluded riders were often "innocent victims of unforgiving road design, poor road maintenance, or the failure of drivers to `think bike'."
The study examined the number of fatal and serious accidents.
The A537, the A54 between Congleton and Buxton which it joins, and the A6 between Derby and Buxton and A515 from Lichfield to Buxton made the list of most dangerous bike routes.
