In addition, Pedal Peak have provided a 50% grant through the European Development Fund for Growing the Visitor Economy in Derbyshire Programme to help towards the cost of the project.
Justin added “We have always known that the Peak District is an amazing place for cycling with classic road routes, family friendly traffic free routes and amazing mountain bike trails. Once we heard about the Pedal Peak support it was a no brainer for us to fully realise our ambition to create more bike friendly accommodation which meet and exceed Cyclists Welcome standards”
