Mountain Biking in the Peak District
Skills Courses and Guided Rides in Derbyshire
Designated as the first national park in the UK, the Peak District is a majestic combination of rugged, wild terrain, lush grasses, rolling hills, vast moorland, thick forest, dry stonewalls, heritage and history.
The Peak District is a haven for some of the best mountain biking in the UK and people from all over come to conquer classic routes and to find the holy grail of trails. The stunning scenery and rolling hills provides the perfect backdrop for the ups and downs you’ll encounter along the trail, suited from novices to expert.
With hundreds of miles of diverse, natural trails to pick and choose from, there is no better place to teach skills and push rider’s limits. High paced, flowing single track, technical descents, forests, open country, lofty ridges and plenty of places to stop for a refreshing brew.
Mountain bike hire is available for all locations in the Peak District between £15-£35 per day depending on the quality of the bike you would like. Please call us on 01904 500094 to find out more.
Our mountain bike instructors have been guiding in the Peak District for many years and are passionate about sharing their hidden gems and secret trails with you. For our guides, it’s not just about being qualified and holding a ticket (though they’re some of the best!), for us mountain biking is in our blood, and we thrive to ride. Any skills coaching or guided ride with us, is one you’ll never forget. Our courses are fun, full of knowledge and insight into your style, form and technique and tailored to you, whether you’re an individual wanting private tuition or in a group. We aim to make you get the most out of your riding by playing on your strong points and making sure to get rid of any nasty habits you may have picked up along the way.
Here are just a few examples of where we’d take you:
