The Peak District is an excellent place to enjoy cycling, with destinations to suit everyone, from flat trails to challenging climbs, off-road terrain or quiet lanes. The spectacular scenery is amongst the best in the world, with extremes from wild windswept moorland, to pretty chocolate box villages.
I started this website to share my love of cycling and the Peak District, through my blog, photographs and videos. After spending a lot of my time as a kid on my bike, I did the common thing of stopping cycling when I got my driving licence. It wasn’t until 2008, that I was motivated to get back on the bike, by which point I had become a podgy couch potato with an sit down office job. The comeback all started, (rather wobbly) on the High Peak Trail, and I haven’t looked back since.
There was no doubt it was hard work at first, I was so unfit that every small incline felt like climbing a mountain! With a bit of perseverance however, the hills that used to wipe me out are now bumps in the road, and I even tackle, albeit slowly, some of the toughest climbs in the Peak District, including Mam Tor, the Cat & Fiddle and Pym Chair in the Goyt Valley.
