New Trails, New Skills
The tour is ideal for riders with some existing experience of MTB, either E bike or non E bike, who want to explore more of the Peak District, discover new routes and some of the lesser known Peak District routes, and also develop their core riding skills. To ensure you get the most of your time in the saddle our guide is also a British Cycling accredited MTB Coach and MTB leader with over 30 years experience riding the local trails (and beyond!). The routes have been planned to take in some areas that are ideal for some skills focus points, that will have your riding skills and confidence developing as we cover the miles. We will also cover how to use your E bike efficiently, cadence, suitable assist settings and riding technique are all covered too to help you get the most out of your battery.
The routes take in some classic Peak District trails (and views). We recommend some previous experience riding off road, and an understanding of the basics of mountain biking. The bikes that we use are full suspension and are a fantastic way to enjoy some Peak District riding. The distance we will cover will be approx 20 – 30 miles each day, an ideal distance for riders wanting to explore the benefits of an E MTB. The maximum group size is 6, a perfect size for the group to get to know each other over the 2 days. We love the Peak District and it’s stunning views, so the pace is not all about racing along in boost mode, we will show you how to get the most out of your battery charge and also take in the awesome Peak District scenery we are lucky enough to call our back yard.
The ‘Adventure Bunkhouse’ in the beautiful Hope Valley is our base for the weekend. 1 night stay in the dorm is included in the package price. A superb location within walking distance to the village of Castleton, and Hope.
