Bikepacking for First Timers - women only


  • The Adventure Hub Hope Valley garden centre Bamford UK (map)

We've teamed up with the Peak district's premier Bikepacking experts, Adventure Pedlars, who are kindly loaning us their specialist kit, and we've put together a weekend guided trip with 2 days of riding, and an overnight bivvy in the beautiful Peak District, especially for those looking for an introduction to the world of bikepacking.

The riding will not be technically challenging, but it will be mainly off-road, on rough tracks and bridleways. We'll cover a reasonable amount of distance so should have a good level of fitness, enough to spend 4 + hours riding each day, which might not sound a lot, but bear in mind your bike will be a lot heavier than you are used to.

You obviously also need to be up for a bit of an adventure! We'll be staying out in the wild, and there won't be the usual home comforts, anything you want to bring with you, you have to carry on your bike! The weather might not be as idylic as that vision you have in your head (hopefully it will!). Having said that, we genuinely think you will feel like you have been on a proper adventure, had a great time  with a bunch of other adventurous lasses, and have been bitten by the bikepacking bug after joining us on this trip!
