On our first ride we will be exploring the parks and trails leading to the Peak District.

When: 10am, Saturday 

Distance: The route will be minimum 12km-20km long 

Proficiency: Please note that the terrain will not be advanced mountain bike terrain but off road (bridleways and similar) and so you need to be comfortable riding a bike on similar surface.
