…we’ll meet in central Manchester before prepping bikes/kit, and riding out into the heart of the Peak District. The ride out to the Overnight is a wiggly 90km, on gravel tracks and quiet roads – exploring the suburbs, National Trust properties, forests and vast moorland landscapes … before finishing at arguably The Peak District’s best pub.

“Incredible two day trip exploring the gravel tracks between Manchester and Sheffield. Great bunch of people and a great set up from the Pannier team. Well organised, easily accessible for all levels of experience and a few hills thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended! Get involved!” // Tom, UK
“…a weekend in the Peak District, with Pannier, was one to remember – tough and rewarding cycling, a distinct style of food, drink and riding, and a real depth knowledge on their local area. Having not spent much time riding bikes, they really introduced me to a new world of adventure and, as a bikepacking newcomer, I was made comfortable with the knowledge that the Pannier guides knew exactly which routes and terrain would suit and challenge us. The overnight was exceptional … and really made it” // Isaac, UK
“Such an amazing trip. The route was perfect, food was on point, and hearty … especially the Bakewell Pudding (Tart) they supplied us … hard to cycle after that sugar hit. Looking forward to riding with these guys again” // Saskia, UK
