Join us on one of Britain’s Best Wild Rides

Try out the Peak District route from our recent guide with our very own Max Darkins and TINCUP Whiskey

Cast your mind back to the start of the summer and you may remember that we asked you to vote for your favourite ‘natural’ route and then gave away a guide to Britain’s Best Wild Rides with our June issue. Well, now’s your chance to try out one of those routes for yourself, without having to faff around with GPS units or maps.


The good folk from TINCUP Whiskey – who sponsored our guide – have teamed up with our routes specialist Max Darkins, of Rough Ride Guide, to host a guided ride on our Dark Peak route on Saturday 26 October. It’ll start and end at The George Inn in Castleton, where whiskey cocktails and a bite to eat will be provided post-ride.


It’s a free event, but you’ll need to let us know in advance if you want to come. Over-18s only, we’re afraid. For more information and to secure your spot, email
