Pedal Peak for Business
Cycling is a healthy, fun, outdoor activity open to all and reduces the cars on our roads. Lots of visitors already enjoy cycling in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and now Derbyshire Dales District Council is working with the Peak District National Park and other partners on a new 3-year project to help businesses in the Dales to welcome cyclists. It includes a Cycle Tourism Toolkit and a local ‘Cyclists Welcome’ accreditation scheme, delivering business workshops and promoting cycle routes and itineraries for residents and visitors. A small grants scheme is available to help businesses improve their facilities for cyclists, available to eligible businesses in four priority areas:
- Bakewell, Rowsley, Matlock and Monsal Trail
- Ashbourne, Hartington and the Tissington Trail
- Wirksworth, Carsington and the High Peak Trail
- The Hope Valley
The project is part of a much larger project to boost the visitor economy in Derbyshire led by Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
If you run a business (maybe or holiday cottage, a tearoom or pub) and would like to improve your facilities for cyclists then download the Cycle Tourism Toolkit or contact Gill Chapman (Economic Development & Tourism Officer) on T:01629 761145 E: firstname.lastname@example.org or see criteria for eligibility on Pedal Peak for Business
