About the Peak District

The Peak District is made up of 2 distinct geological areas known as the White Peak and the Dark Peak 

 

The White Peak consists mainly of rolling limestone hills, crags, dry stone walls and historic towns. It is well served by cycle trails so it makes an ideal base for the majority of our tours and our main cycle hubs


The Dark Peak comprises of higher gritstone uplands and moors with spectacular passes and makes an ideal location for some of our longer and most iconic tours that depart from our remote cycle hubs

This is why Peak District is the perfect location for our first ePedals Countryside e-Bike touring site and also because it has the following...

Nature & Wildlife in the National Park

On every tour there is always an opportunity to see some of the wild plants and living things that are synonymous with the Peak District.   . 

 

The Limestone Valleys & Dales of the White Peak host a greater variety of life particularly in the Dales where mans influence is less evident. The limestone has promoted heather, bilberry, yellow mountain pansy and heath grasses. The native woodlands consist of ash, elm, yew and lime with an undercover cherry, dogwood and hazel. Pastureland may reveal thyme, milkwort, rock rose, violets and orchid. They attract a host of insects and creatures like the brown argus butterflies and nesting wheatears. The rivers Wye and Dove are teaming with may flies and stone flies providing ideal food for trout, grayling, swifts and dippers.

 

The heather covered gritstone moors and peat bogs of the Dark Peak contain a lesser variety of plants with large areas dominated by heather, bilberry, cotton grass and moor grasses. Less common plants include bearberry, cloudberry, oak and beech ferns. The heather moors provide a home for red grouse and back grouse and the more common meadow pipit. In the remnants of the oak and silver birch woodlands a variety of woodland birds frequent including redstart, pied flycatcher, and wood warbler. The mountain hare is a rare beauty to behold and birds of prey can often be spotted

 

Keep vigilant and you may encounter these wonders whilst cycling through this magnificent scenery.
