Inspired by Eroica Britannia 2016 and as rashly promised in our Eroica blog last year, David and I completed our challenge in style cycling the 25 mile route on our 1930’s tandem!

For those who haven’t heard of Eroica Britannia before it is billed as ‘The World's Most Handsome Bike Ride’ and it...

The quaint village of Hartington is just a 15-20 minute car journey through the rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales. Alternatively you can cycle along the High Peak Trail, cross over the A515 and drop downhill to the village.

The first thing we discovered; Hartington was the first village in Derbyshire to be granted permission to hold a weekly market in 1203, selling locally m...

Why not enjoy cycling in The Peak District? Here are our top six reasons to get your cycle out and get active.

This is definitely the case with our amazing Boma 7 off-road wheelchair! Following on from the entertaining calendar photo shoot with marauding animals, which was a laugh a minute, we found ourselves working with Chris and the Boma team once again to host the first Boma Owner's Appreciation Day. Molten Rock was founded by Chris Swift, who became tetraplagic in 1995 foll...
