Glory Days Bikes®
Run for cyclists, by cyclists.

The very best pre 1987 British steel road bikes. Located in the heart of the Peak District, all our bicycles are available to hire.

Great rides start with a great bike. Our bicycles reflect the passion and craftsmanship of the traditional frame builders of the 1970s and 80s. These machines represent cutting edge technology of the day. They are both useful and beautiful. Ride with us and explore the splendid and spectacular scenery of the Peak District National Park.

Our bikes

All our frames are steel tubing and of British manufacture. Our good bicycles have names like Carlton, Dawes, Holdsworth and Raleigh. Our really good bicycles have even more boring names like Geoffrey Butler, Dave Marsh and J F Wilson. All have a unique history and meet our strict criteria. Take a closer look at our retro road bikes.
