This event is part of the Peak District Multi-activity Weekend 2022. However, you are welcome to take part in this activity if you are not signed up for the hostel event.

The planned route is about 40km (25 miles) and is predominantly off-road cycle trails. Depending on weather conditions and the mood of the group, there will be options to make the day shorter or longer. 

We will meet at the Glenorchy Centre and head off uphill out of the town to the High Peak Trail. Our route along the High Peak and Tissington Trails (both disused railways) passes through stunning scenery in this beautiful part of the Peak District. We will leave the trail at Tissington and return to Wirksworth along quiet roads, passing through Bradbourne and Carsington, where there will be a well-earned pub stop.

You will need a mountain bike or hybrid bike for this activity. Because the route is predominantly off road, with some bumpy and gravely sections, it is not suitable for road bikes. If you do not own a suitable bike you can hire one from Middleton Top Visitor Centre, which is near the start of our route.

This activity, doesn't require any technical mountain-biking experience. However, there are some steep uphill and downhill sections, so a reasonable level of fitness and cycling experience will be required. The pace will be leisurely, with plenty of stops for snacks and photography,
