Is It For Me?

The Peak District enjoys a wide diversity of mountain biking opportunities.

Introductory mountain bike rides will usually take place on easier prepared trails. The use of prepared trails means we can achieve travel over greater distances while still remaining completely off road. The cycle routes at an introductory level may follow abandoned railway lines with some complex sections of trail added in if appropriate. Great for families or groups of friends wanting a cruisy off road experience.

More Challenging rides tend to use the moorland (upland) areas of the Dark Peak, the trails will require more physical effort and some previous experience off road cycling is beneficial. These rides may travel through areas of remote exposed open countryside and are more technically and physically challenging. Participants will need a commitment to complete these rides given the remote situations that some journeys enjoy.

During a ride leaders may introduce and demonstrate a range of useful cycling skills or use structured games to promote better handling skills over technical ground. Longer rides demand a reasonable standard of personal fitness.
