The van was eventually stopped in Walton-le-Dale.
The stolen motorbike was subsequently located inside the van as well as a quantity of cannabis.
The driver was also found driving under the influence of alcohol at the scene.
A 30-year-old man, of no fixed address, was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, failing to stop for police, possession of Class C drugs, failing to provide a drug test and driving impaired.
He was later released on bail, pending further enquiries, until July 10.
