I would like to publish my guide book for easy to medium rides, in the Peak District, supporting others to explore further afield.

About Me I love introducing people to the great outdoors. I am an outdoor instructor, youth worker and teacher, currently working for the Peak District National Park. I have been leading people in a wide range of outdoor activities for over 30 years. I am the Training Officer for Buxton Mountain Rescue Team.

I like to break down barriers and make challenges surmountable, filling people with confidence and inspiring them to take on their own adventures.

My Project I have written a guide book with 14 - 15 easy to moderate rides, taking in some of the lovely, quiet lanes and off-road tracks in the southern Peak District. Most of the routes start from cycle hire centres and the routes are suitable for e-bikes as well as traditional bicycles.

I hope the book will encourage people to get outside, giving them the confidence to try new routes and learn new skills. The book also has sections on how to be a responsible cyclist in terms of the environment, conservation and other users. In addition, the book introduces rights of way and how to find places to cycle.  

My Aims I hope that my book will support others to do more cycling, discovering the wonders of the White Peak and South West Peak District. The routes are easy to follow and the terrain is not too tough or technical. (You can't escape the hills though). 

From my work with visitors to the National Park, I know there is demand for cycling guide books and mapping for easier routes. Mountain bike routes in the Peak District are already well catered for

The Money I will use the money to get the book published. Any spare funds will be put aside to run bike rides with disadvantaged groups or families through my business Carina Outdoors - carinaoutdoors.co.uk
