Whether you are looking for the best traffic free road routes, or if you part of the growing gravel riding trend, gain valuable advice from our ride leaders.
Explore the roads and climbs within the Peak District and discover routes made famous by The Tour of Britain, Tour de France and Tour de Yorkshire. We have some of the most amazing roads through rolling countryside, un-spoilt villages and endless miles of newly surfaced roads and enough climbing to challenge cyclists of all abilities.
We can offer guided or supported rides. Just tell us your criteria – if there are any specific routes/climbs you want to conquer, how many miles you want to cover or if you require multiple days.
Gravel riding consists of a variety of terrain, forestry commission bridleways, canal tow paths, disused railways and even sections of the Pennine Bridleway. They tend to be quite flat or rolling, taking out the severity of the hills of the Peaks, which provides a good days riding and not tiring your legs out on the climbs.
Don’t think you need a specific gravel bike – these routes can be ridden on more traditional mountain or hybrid bikes!
You might want to give the Tour de Peak District a try? This 155 mile route takes in road and off road sections, which can be undertaken over any number of days from 2-5.
Looking for something more challenging? Thinking of tackling the Tour of Flanders or Paris Roubaix?
Having experienced the roads of both the classics our tour leaders can help you get the most out of your preparations and training. By supporting you on more local rides, such as routes following the Cheshire Cobble Classic or Ronde Van Calderdale, carrying food/drinks/spares and other supplies, allowing you to concentrate on the route and demanding terrain.
