E-Bike Guiding & Adventures
It’s not cheating… even the pro’s are using them!
Over the past three years we’ve seen a massive change in the attitude towards e-bikes and people now are recognising their purpose and as their own individual discipline. We’ve seen a lot of ‘nay-sayers’ now fully embrace them, now they see them for what they are… FUN!……… Isn’t that they idea behind any sport?
These are perfect for individuals or groups wanting to explore the Peak District as you can travel much further, see more and experience a whole new adventure.
Bring your own suitable e-bike or hire one of our own amazing high end full suspension e-bikes.
There are many benefits to e-bikes and they’ve very much deserved their place as a cycling discipline.
All our packages are graded and tailored to suit all abilities.
A day out
Our guided adventures are for everyone, we have routes for all ability levels from beginner to advanced. The routes will allow you a good taster of what ebiking is all about.
A full weekend of riding with accommodation
Our guided adventures allow groups of riders to enjoy some of the best trails the Peak District has to offer, over 2 days. We arrange the accommodation, e-bike hire and the routes.
You simply turn up and enjoy.
Regardless of your ability or experience all our rides involve familiarisation and brushing up on e-bike specific techniques prior to the ride, all designed around getting the most from an e-bike and understanding the different riding styles required to get the most fun from these amazing bikes..
our ride grading system
All our adventures are graded so you know before you book exactly what the route is going to ask of you!
Using a combination of the philosophy used in UK climbing grading, which recognises both how techincal the climb is and ski and trail grading that acknowledges difficulty by colour, our route grading is designed to give you an idea of the skill level and fitness level required to book onto the chosen adventure.
In order to make sure beginners aren’t overwhelmed or put in dangerous situations, and to make sure more experienced riders get the challenge they expect we’ve introduced the grading system, It might seem a little overkill but we want to ensure all riders on the day get to ride with shredders of similar experience and skill.
You can click on the grading icons at anytime to see how that experience or adventure is graded.

We try to make our bookings flexible, so if you see a date with your grading – get it booked!
If you have a specific date in mind but the grading doesn’t suit you, don’t panic. Where you see a (F) next to the grading this means its flexible and we can change to suit when booking – so first come first served. Where there’s no (F) the grading is fixed and you must be of this ability (at least) to join this group.
All dates are currently shown as mixed groups, however should you wish to book a private group let us know and the numbers and we’ll book this off for you.
Where weekends are shown as adventure weekends, these are only available to book as our weekend breaks. Please refer to the section below for weekends if you are interested in booking onto these.
This is a tough challenge, you’ll need your skills as well as your fitness for this 50 mile route across the Dark & White Peaks of the Peak District. This is something unique to True North, as we provide double batterys to complete this loop in the day.
Taking in all the Peaks classic descents and more, extremely challenging climbs mixed with stunning scenery and remote locations go to ensuring you’ll remember this experience for quite a long time. Its a figure of 8 loop and can be started from any point – every time dropping down for lunch at a local pub or cafe for some much deserved refreshments – and a battery swop.
This is a good one if your training for a long distance race or challenge event or you just fancy testing yourself. T
Starting from Hope railway station this route is a great Hope Valley introduction if you’ve not visited before.
Classified as a red route there’s lots of variety from rocky descents to great single track, woodland trails and remote moorland riding. We have the option to extend this route and pick up some other famous Peak classic trails if good progress is made.
Starting at Hartington Youth Hostel this relaxed chilled out tour across some of the nicest White Peak scenery you’ll come across, the stunning limestone gorges of the Manifold Valley and Thors Cave. This route is split into thirds, nice single track mixed with easy going tracks and lanes combined with paved cycle routes.
Its graded blue/red as it does have a few sections of technical riding so its not a beginner route but the sections are walkable if you do wish to attempt this route.
We’ll pass on our skills to help you improve your technique and confidence as the day goes on.
We pass some great villages with cafes, pubs and tea rooms so this is a great route for a mixed day out.
