Peak District Cycling Weekend

Bike Adventure

Your experienced guide will lead you through two days of varied biking with enjoyable off road trail sections and quiet on road sections.


The Peak District forms a spectacular range of upland wilderness within easy reach of most of the UK. With a good selection of trails both in the valleys and high on the hills, we are able to construct long off road sections, and good leg burning up hills, and adrenaline fuelled downhills.

 


Itinerary

A detailed itinerary will be provided on your joining instructions (released upon booking), but below is a rough outline…

Arrive Friday evening by 21:00.

Saturday

Return by 18:00, to change and get ready for night out!

Simple basic bunkhouse accommodation will be provided for you. You will need to bring towel (if you would like to wash!), and a sleeping bag. Your breakfasts are also provided.

What is a Level 2.0 Cycling Challenge Like?

Level 2 rides are designed to be suitable for riders progressing past their earliest cycling experiences, now gaining confidence, and looking for slightly longer rides. In your own time, you will be used to going on training rides of up to 3 hours, and covering distances of up to 40 miles, with a few small hills thrown in for good measure! Level 2 rides will get you out and exploring places you didn't expect to be able to get to on 2 wheels!

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 2.0 ‘Bike Ride’ ?

You must be active and with a moderate level of fitness. You should be taking regular exercise, consisting of bike rides and a mixture of other activities (swimming / football / running etc.) You should be comfortable in undertaking long country rides of up to 4 hours or 60 km in the lowland English countryside. Your training rides will encounter a few reasonable length hills.

 

Medical Issues

Please note, it is extremely important for this physical challenge that you are in good health. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, please consider carefully whether you should be joining the challenge. Please ensure you fill in the booking form accurately and honestly, this is important. In the case of serious conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, heart conditions, recent illness or operations), please discuss the challenge with your GP. Please also ensure you notify us of any allergies or similar.

It requires stamina and good aerobic fitness - but good willpower will also come in handy! Failure to disclose medical conditions is a serious omission - that could have serious repercussions on any of our challenges.

Safety Information

By nature all activities contain an element of risk.Your leader will be first aid qualified and will carry the appropriate safety kit for the activity, such as mountain safety shelters, walking rope and from time to time mobile radios. Safety equipment carried will be appropriate to trip. The leader's primary role is to ensure your safety, but it is your responsibility to listen to their guidance and instructions.

 

Weather

Being in the UK we should be prepared for anything. Whilst not wishing everyone to bring heaps of equipment we should be prepared for both poor weather and scorching hot weather. Bring both equipment to protect from hot sun, and also to protect in case it rains. It is unlikely to be cold.
