Test riding the Pennine Bridleway tour

I’ve just ridden days 2, 3 and 4 of the Penine Bridleway tour ahead of September (yes I know I’ve missed out day 1 but as it’s closest to me I’ll come back and remind myself of that section next week!). It was the first time I’d ridden the Yorkshire Dales section (wow!) and some sections I’d not ridden for a while, so read on to see what you’ll be signing up for!

Survey results for off-road riding

A recent study done by Cycling UK has shown the popularity of off-road cycling in the UK right now. It also highlights our outdated rights of way laws, but that’s another matter…
There’s plenty of interesting stats to pore over, but here’s a bar chart showing the nations interest in riding multi day routes – and the Pennine Bridleway in particular!

Book onto our Pennine Bridleway tour with Peak Pedalling, and the full survey results are available here.

Spring’s on it’s way folks!

Well ok, it’s not quite here yet… but it is a good time to start planning your cycling year! Something I do every spring is to give my bikes some much needed TLC. Whether you’ve not ridden your bike since last summer or you’ve thrashed it through the winter grime, it will benefit from a service and probably prevent future costs. Apart from the pleasure (and safety) of having everything working properly, everyone knows that a clean and serviced bike is a faster bike, right? If you live near the cycling paradise of Macclesfield I can collect your pride and joy and give it a check over or a full service, just get in touch

Spring: it's happened before, it'll happen again!
