If you run a business (maybe or holiday cottage, a tearoom or pub) and would like to improve your facilities for cyclists then don't miss the free workshops 'Welcoming and Marketing to Cyclists' on 6th March at Hassop, DE4 1NW).  To book your free place see here (morning event) or here (afternoon event). 

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 Derbyshire Dales District Council is working with the Peak District National Park and other partners on a 3-year project to help businesses in the Dales to welcome cyclists.

This 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.
