Hit the Hills @ Bamford, Peak District 18th May 2012


mountain biking mam torThis Weekend Is Sold Out! Come and ride some phenomenal trails from Bamford, in the Hope Valley; it’s a great base for a weekend of mountain biking in the Peak District. Hit the Hills has booked some awesome accommodation; it’s a bunkhouse with a boozer up the road and great access to some classic Peaks cycle routes from the door.  


The trails are fast, loose, steep, rocky and sometimes a combination of the lot! You can do a short blast, maybe a massive all day epic or something more sensible.
