Peak District Away Weekend Sep-Oct 2016
This is a social weekend spent cycling in the Peak District of England. We’ll stay in the lovely Eyam Youth Hostel and there will be planned rides on the Saturday and Sunday.
Accommodation will be booked for 2 nights, but you can opt to stay a night before or after if you let us know soon.
Bed and Breakfast accommodation costs £51.90 per person for the weekend. Additional nights may be available at the same rate if booked quickly.
Who can go
Any Oakley Pedalers member is welcome, and we have booked thirty places which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
What will the rides be like
The Peaks are so called because there are a few hills. However, we will be designing routes on the same basis as the Devon weekend; aimed to provide a manageable stretch for the foundation riders, with extra loops to give even the hardcore advanced something to get their teeth into.
As usual, we plan these so that different riding groups will meet up at points throughout the day and share stories.
The landscape itself is wonderful, and we will be showing you our favourite places to visit over the weekend.

Mr Google says it will take about 3 1/2 hours to drive there, or 5 hours by rail and bus. One good option is the fast train to Sheffield and a 13 – 16 mile ride from there to the hostel.
We are also exploring the costs of a van to take about 15 bikes and luggage, which would free up car space for passengers.
Put the dates in your diary and book from the homepage of our site (form in top right corner). At the same time, let us know if you want accommodation booked for Thursday or Sunday nights (if we can).
