At least one of the two days we’ll ride straight from the digs.

What you'll need

A functional mountain bike. Hardtails are OK but the trails are rocky, and easier on a full on a full susser. More important is that your bike is good condition. The rocky descents in the Dark Peak can be tough on bikes; anything that's on its last legs is likely to fail. Ideally you'll be riding on tubeless tyres with reinforced sidewalls. Lightweight cross country tyres are likely to puncture.

A reasonable level of fitness. We'll be riding for up to 6 hours off-road and often on steep terrain. We'll take it steady and nobody will get left behind. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch.

Intermediate skills - You're happy with a trail centre reds. For any features or descents that are more challenging, I'll make sure you're aware of them. You can choose to ride them (I can coach if required) or push round them (no shame or peer pressure here).

About the riding

Both Saturday and Sunday’s rides will have: a lot of climbing, epic views & exhilarating descents.

The actual routes will be determined closer the time based on local weather and trail conditions.

Saturday will be at least 30K with a minimum of 750m of climbing.

Sunday will be similar, possibly slightly shorter.

Both days will feature classic descents from my all-time top 10 favourites in the Dark Peak.
