2 day tour of the best of The Peak District
WHAT IS IT?
A 2 day tour of the Peak District - the perfect way to get in shape for your big summer goals!
We won’t scale every climb (that would need at least a month!) – but you will experience the best of what the Peak District has to offer and our weekends are scheduled a few weeks before some of the big sportives, such as the Fred Whitton and the Etape du Tour, to give you the workout you need!
Day 1 will be spent in the northern Dark Peak scaling climbs such as the legendary Winnats Pass, with the other day spent in the southern White Peak where I will show you the shorter, but sharper, climbs this area has to offer.
Over the 2 days we will cover around 220km and gain about 4500m in elevation - more than enough to stretch your legs!
To make the most of the weekend you need to have experience of riding at least 100km (60 miles) in one day. This doesn’t have to be 100 hilly kilometres; if you have experience of spending a few hours in the saddle you will be fine.

During the entirety of both rides I will be your guide; not just in terms of setting the route, but forewarning you of tricky sections, when to take it easy and when to push on – and if you want to take on a Strava segment, just wait for the rest of us at the top!
If you don’t already have a love for hills; you will after a ‘Peak Weekender’!
