Will and Carol are co-founders of Glory Days Bikes www.glorydays.cc

We are trained ride leaders as well as being full of local knowledge and eager to please. Will is a Countryside Ranger and Carol is a Project Manager specialising in cycle tourism. In our spare time we hire out vintage bikes and lead rides for our instagram followers (@glorydaysbikes).

We have been living, riding and working in and around the Peak District for over 25 years and can't wait to share our specially selected routes with you!

All of our bicycles have been searched out and carefully chosen. Following a complete overhaul and service they are then given a test ride before being available to hire. They reflect the craftsmanship of the traditional British frame builders of the 1979s and 80s and are a joy to ride.

We had a great afternoon exploring a small scenic part of the Peaks with Will and Carol. The route was well tailored to our needs and it was great to have coffee and snacks provided. Will and Carol were great company and very enthusiastic. I would highly recommend this to anyone as part of a weekend in the peaks.

Will took me on a spectacular 3 hour ride that was tailored to my interests and fitness level. He knows the Derbyshire Dales like the back of his hand so he can create any cycling experience you might dream of. Would love to do another ride if I’m there again.
