What you'll do

Using Electric Mountain bikes that make the uphills easy and the downhills fun. We will ride local trails from Buxton depending on the weather and conditions. We have routes for everyone, from beginner to those more experienced and include some lesser known trails off the beaten path. From the meeting point we will travel to our starting point, get you set up and comfortable on the bike. Then we will hit the hills, enjoy the views, fresh air and adventure.
(Please enquire with me about taking a total of 3 people out. I do have enough bikes, it just depends on the size of bike available for each person's height.)
Other things to note
Be aware that cycling is a physical activity and we have some quite large hills. You need to be reasonably fit but the electric motors on the bikes really help . Bring appropriate clothing for the ride, no trailing fabric.

I have spent my life living in and enjoying the Peak District. Over ten years being on two wheels. My passion is Mountain Biking and getting to see areas that few people see. I've competed in Enduro races over the years. I'd like to share some of my favourite trails and some hidden spots. We have some of the best views in the country on our doorstep. We look forward to showing you - Alex

Here's a few words from my Co Host John:
I take pride in having gained a wide knowledge of the Peak District, especially the varying terrain for enjoyment by all ages and ability levels. I like to share this enthusiasm with guests who are visiting for a memorable experience whether it is their first time or they are back to try a different route. The aim is to have the best experience taking in the trails, rivers, crags and some suitable refreshments.

So enjoyable that this is my third time. Friendly, well run, adapted to one's fitness level and preferences. I think it's great value too, if you compare with the cost of buying and maintaining your own e-bike. Alex has such amazing local knowledge to guide you on a range of places and routes that you probably could never discover yourself.

The experience was magical! Pure perfection! The location, the route - personalised by Alex to my preference and skill level, the stories behind the location, the views and the ride - everything was beyond wonderful! A once in a lifetime gift to myself that made me feel so grateful for being alive and able to experience and see the world in this unique way! Thank you Alex!

Alex is a complete expert at judging what is right for you. Tell him about your skill level and he will ensure you get a magnificent ride. Alex’s local historical and geographical knowledge is superb, so he brings extra dimensions of interest to the ride. The e-bikes are top class. The trip we took with Alex was the highlight of our time in the Peak District.

We wanted an activity to do with our 16 year old son. This was perfect. I was slightly apprehensive but we were all looked after well and Alex helped with short sections I found a little too challenging. The scenery is lovely and we all really enjoyed our afternoon of activity, fresh air and a new experience. This was a great way to experience e-biking for the first time with a very experienced rider and teacher. There was also, of course the luxury of walking away leaving 3 very muddy bikes behind us, only needing to worry about cleaning ourselves.
