Enter our new monthly off-road rides from SUMMAT in Bakewell

THE rolling landscape of the White Peak is criss-crossed by ancient trackways and punctuated by stunning limestone dales. Ride our Peak Rough Stuff Rides and you'll explore a different off-road circuit each month, starting from Summat Cafe & Gym in Bakewell, that will provide a stern challenge but not an ordeal.

These are unsigned, self-sufficient rides - suitable for gravel, mountain or cyclocross bikes - and will take you over little-known tracks, trails and lanes, away from the weekend crowds. For each ride you'll get a GPX file and a printed route card for navigation and we'll have a ride leader who will ride with the slowest riders.

PRS01 - May's PRS ride

THANKS to all the riders who joined us on the very first PEAK ROUGH STUFF ride at the end of May (route below). We were met with good dry conditions and all the reactions we received were incredibly positive. It was great to have the OTE Sports team along for the ride and the Anytime bar really hit the spot. Here are just some of your comments:

"Mega day finally getting to explore the gravel the Peak District has to offer."

"40-miles of the good stuff, sandwiched between flat white heaven at @summatsports."

"Really helped me ramp the mileage up this month and met some very lovely people."

An open to all British Cycling registered sportive run under BC regulations and up to date Covid guidance.
