The Peak District gives a wide diversity of biking opportunites.

In the White Peak area, riding can take place along specially prepared cycle trails or along abandoned railway lines.
The scenery in this area contrasts between steep sided river valleys punctuated by vertical cliff faces to open hay meadows on the upland areas of the 'White Peak' plateau  .

Further north in the rugged moorland areas of the Dark Peak, guided rides travel through areas of remote exposed countryside and may be more technically and physically challenging. Seasonal weather conditions can add another dimension of challenge.

Steep & Deep use the countryside rights of way appropriately for all our off road cycling activities.

Group Leadership

Introductory mountain bike rides will usually take place on easier prepared trails, we do this to achieve travelling over greater distances and for safety management reasons. Sections of more technical trail will be closely controlled.
During a ride leaders may introduce and demonstrate a range of useful cycling skills or use structured play and games to promote better handling skills.
Our longer rides demand a reasonable standard of personal fitness. Participants will need commitment to complete these rides given the remote situations that some journeys enjoy.

Coaching & Guided Rides

Steep & Deep have recruited our mountain bike leaders from local organic produce!
We have one author (Mountain Biking in the Peak District) and two very enthusiastic cycle mechanics that steer this part of our operation.
These are the guys that will push you, encourage you, and repair your tyres when you have a mishap
