White Peak Excursion

Explore the quiet lanes and villages of the 'White Peak' on vintage bikes

Thursday April 18 2019 (10am – 2pm approx.)

Explore the quiet lanes and villages of the ‘White Peak’ on Glory Days ‘Eroica’ style vintage bike tour to celebrate National Parks fortnight.

Our White Peak Excursion takes us through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Peak District National Park where you will experience the traditional custom of well dressing and sample some local delights at a village tearoom.

We will journey through typical White Peak villages including Tideswell, Litton and Ashford-in-the-Water taking in some breath taking scenery.

You’ll be riding with one of our local experts, full of knowledge and guaranteed to please on this specially selected route. We love where we live and love where we ride and look forward to sharing our favourite routes with you. Just book, turn up and we’ll do the rest!

Dust down that 1970s or 80s tourer and relive your ‘Glory Days’. Don’t worry if you don’t have a retro bicycle, we have an amazing range of reliable retro bikes for hire at a special rate of £25 for participants on this ride – please contact us to discuss your requirements and to reserve the right bike for you. We’ll run through the gears etc. and ensure the bike is set up to suit you.
