The rolling landscape of the White Peak is criss-crossed by ancient trackways and punctuated by stunning limestone dales. Ride our Peak Rough Stuff Rides and you'll explore a different off-road circuit each month, starting from Summat Cafe & Gym in Bakewell, that will provide a stern challenge but not an ordeal.

These are unsigned, self-sufficient rides - suitable for gravel, mountain or cyclocross bikes - and will take you over little-known tracks, trails and lanes, away from the weekend crowds. For each ride you'll get a GPX file and a printed route card for navigation and we'll have a ride leader who will ride with the slowest riders.

NB. The routes will not be signposted; you will be following a GPS file and/or a printed route sheet.
