Weekend Breaks

Two day tours (tours can start/finish on any day)

The Peak District is only an hour from Manchester and 2.5 hours from London. If you would like a short break away from the routine why not try a 2 day break?

All tours are based in the same location for both days which means that you don't have to unpack/pack each day & the luggage transfer option isn't required.

All tours are self led which allows you to travel at your own pace & stop when you wish. You are provided with bikes & equipment (panniers, bar bags, helmets etc), maps, local information & history, detailed route notes & an emergency back up number in the unlikely event that you require assistance.

All prices are per person based on 2 people sharing either a twin or double room. If you would like to book a single supplement please state this on the booking form & we will contact you to discuss prices & availablity.

Some tours offer 2 days walking, 2 days cycling or a days walk & a days ride. There are 5 tours to choose from or you can call us on 01457 851462 or 07961 052 590 if you would like an alternative tour arranging.
