I have worked in the outdoor recreation industry for 30 years, inspiring others to take up outdoor sports and to develop their confidence, skills and knowledge. I will work with you, at your pace, to help you achieve your aims, whatever they may be.
I will guide you on a bike ride, taking you to the best that the Peak District has to offer in terms of quiet lanes and easy off-road tracks and trails. We will see beautiful scenery and ride through quiet hamlets and villages, stopping for refreshments. PLEASE NOTE you will need your own roadworthy bike and helmet or I can assist you in hiring one from one of the local cycle hire centres.
Learn out about gentle, off-road bike riding. I offer bespoke rides, covering navigation, the best locations to ride in the Peak District, riding skills and more. I will tailor the route and session to meet your requirements. PLEASE NOTE you will need your own roadworthy bike and helmet or I can assist you in hiring one from one of the local cycle hire centres. Contact me to find out more.
