Adventure Bike & Equipment Hire

We have a range of versatile adventure bikes to get you out into the world and all the gear you’ll need to do it.

With customised set-ups to suit your adventure: from fully loaded touring Bikes to Fatbikes, Tandems and light-weight bikepacking set ups. Have your own cycling adventure without having to first invest in all the gear.

Introductory Courses

Want to know what it’s all about, get inspired or prepare for heading off on your first cycling adventure?

We bring together all that we’ve learned from life on the road to pass on the essentials of Adventure Cycle Touring and Bikepacking whilst getting out for an adventure on our overnight practical courses.


We think that self supported, multi day off-road cycle touring is the best way to get away from it all, enjoy wild places & have fun on your bike.  

With all the kit you need and routes across the UK and the rest of the world we’ll put together the best guided or self-guide package for you.

Our base in the beautiful Hope Valley right in the heart of the Peak District National Park provides the perfect staging post for all kinds of cycling adventures. With some of the UK’s best mountain biking and road cycling right on our doorstep there’s an adventure to suit every rider. With easy rail and road links from both Manchester and Sheffield, The Peak is probably closer than you’d think.

About The Adventure Pedlar

“After a lifetime of living and working all things bike: from mechanics to Mountain Bike guiding in both the UK and overseas, I then followed my dream to cycle across the planet, riding for two years with my wife Alice from the UK to New Zealand. 

Now, having lived the simple pleasures of bicycle travel and seen how it provides the ideal antidote to fast paced ‘modern life’, I’m committed to inspire others into getting out on their own adventures. See more of mine at mcneilsonwheels.com
