Service Description

Spend an idyllic day browsing small art galleries, relaxing in cafes and cycling down country lanes and paths in stunning surroundings of the White Peak area The tour starts from our Winster Hub at the Miners Standard and climbs up the picturesque single track Birchover Lane to Birchover before moving onto to Stanton and then dropping down to our first gallery stop in Rowsley. Just outside of Rowsley we pick up the Coombs Road Gravel Trail which takes us onto to our 2nd stop in the picturesque town of Bakewell home to multiple galleries, refreshment options and even a photography exhibition From Bakewell we journey out to explore some lovely unspoiled villages linked by wonderful country lanes. The tour visits Sheldon and Earl Sterndale before dropping down into Buxton the creative heart of the Peak District and home to multiple galleries exhibitions and even more refreshment options. The tour price includes collecting you and the bikes from Buxton but if you fancied another 17 miles on the bikes you could ride back to Winster!!! By their nature small galleries do tend to open and close quite frequently so we have based our tour around the two creative hubs of Bakewell & Buxton which always have multiple options for you to browse. We will provide a detailed list of galleries for you when we send your tour joining instructions. This tour allows plenty of time for browsing but involves 4 hours of cycling down country lanes & tracks to reach your destination.
