“Adventure Pedlars isn’t just a thing we do, it’s a thing we live… a state of mind”
We believe that the humble bicycle is the perfect tool for getting away from all of the noise and stress of modern life and re-connecting with both the world around us and our own minds within.
Born out of a 20,000km bike ride, Adventure Pedlars, since 2015, has been inspiring and facilitating all manner of cycling adventures and escapes in the UK and abroad. Having ourselves lived the simple pleasures of bicycle travel for years in the saddle and seen how it provides the ideal antidote to fast paced ‘modern life’, we’re committed to inspiring others into getting out on their own adventures. Now, based in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, we’re perfectly placed to help you find your adventure…
In our experience, the best cycling adventure is one that is free to develop as you go, giving you what’s required for a real sense of adventure: the unknown. This is why our bikepacking and bikeglamping escapes are self-guided .
On your self-guided escape we’ll do all of the legwork in putting together a route, plan and equipment you need for your self-guided bikepacking expedition around the Peak District. We’ll work with you beforehand to arrange the best kind of route to suit your group’s needs, fitness level experience. At the start of your adventure we’ll meet you and brief your group on the route and set you up with your bike, luggage and equipment, making sure everything’s sorted before you go. We’ll also provide a backup service to help you out should you have any problems so all you really have to do is turn up.
Our custom routes are easy to follow at your own pace using annotated route maps (containing our recommendations for the best local places to stop at along the way) and our range of cycle mounted GPS navigation units that work like your car’s sat-nav so that you’ll never miss a turn.
Wild nights out:
Whether you want to experience the true freedom of wildcamping in one of our permissive wildcamp spots or if you’d rather glamp in true luxury in one of our specially set up bell tent bikeglamping camps we have a truly unforgettable night under the stars to suit you.
Learn the basics:
If you're keen to get involved but find it all a bit daunting then let us show you the ropes first on one of our bikepacking and cycle touring skills workshops.
Our aim is to introduce as many people as possible to the simple joys of bike travel so we hope to inspire your cycling adventure soon!
