With the Peak District on our doorstep and summer warming the air, there can be no better way to spend a weekend than enjoying a fresh-air adventure, walking and biking! Guided by qualified local leaders, here’s your opportunity to join these cut-price adventures on a super-weekend getaway.

Guided Walking – Edale, Mam Tor, Brown Knoll & Jacob’s Ladder
5th March 2024

Nature: This will be a super walk leading you from the picturesque village of Bradfield up to the heights of Bradfield Moor, Back Tor, Derwent Edge and then back along the valley. The total distance for this wonderful tour is a meaty 22Km and it has in excess of 400m of climbing.

Meet at: The Sands Car park, Low Bradfield, S6 6LA
Timings: 09:30 meet – and allow around 6 hours for the walk
Bring: come equipped for a day on the hill and especially come with your lunch
Distance: 22 Km / 13 miles
Height gain: 415m
How tough? Proper hill walking country utilising, paths, tracks and roads, but also some off-the-trail yomping. Needless to say, strong legs, good heart and big lungs could be helpful!
Led by: Will– qualified Mountain Leader
Price per person: £20pp

Guided Mountain Biking – Hope Valley Highlights
6th March 2024

Nature: This wonderful Peak District mountain biking trail takes in three whopper hills in order to get in three fabulous flowy descents. None of the descents are overly demanding, though to get the most from them you do need to know a little bit about what you’re doing. If you’re struggling with the hills, you can always miss out the final ascent and not do Shatton Edge. (But it would be a huge shame to miss this out!) By starting and finishing at Bamford Station or Hope Station, this is an ideal route to access by public transport too, which allows you to have a swift pint before heading home and saves the environment at the same time!

Meeting location: Bamford Station S33 0AH
Timings: 10:30 am meet – and allow around 6 hours (maximum) for the ride (note: no trains from Manchester Piccadilly on this day)
Distance: 22 miles / 35 km (though can easily be shortened)
Height gain: 969m
How tough? If you do all three climbs – strong legs, good heart and big lungs required!
How technical? Some steep descents could easily throw you from your bike – but nothing more technical than about a blue route
Nearest bike hire: The Bike Garage – Bamford/Hope Valley
Local pubs we would recommend: The Traveller’s Rest, Brough, S33 9HG
Bring: Lunch, a drink, and your helmet!
Wear: Mitts, glasses and a small bag for your lunch and a spare layer
Led by: Will– MIAS L2 Mountain Bike Leader, and qualified Mountain Leader
Price per person:
