The motorbike you’ll be riding pillion on around the Peak District is really rather unique. This operator imported a fleet of ex-US Police Harley-Davidson® Road Kings and they are pretty amazing. They have that undeniably cool retro styling with lots of chrome the windshield and traditional low-slung seats. It’s a head-turner of a Harley for sure and we can’t imagine that there are many Police Harleys in the Peaks!
Tours all set off from Buxton in the very heart of the Peak District. Those on the half-day ride outs will enjoy a circular route through the likes of the Hope Valley Glossop and Chapel-en-le-Frith.
The full-day outings are filled with reservoirs market towns and sweeping country lanes. You’ll cruise along the Hope Valley through Castleton Dove Holes the brilliantly named Wigtwizzle past the likes of Ladybower and Langsett reservoir. This is Derbyshire countryside at its finest – and all seen from the rear seat of an amazing Harley-Davidson®.
Lunch in a traditional cafe is included for full day pillion riders and everyone gets to stop and have a cuppa at the fantastic Fairholmes Visitor Centre on Ladybower Lake where you can drink in the amazing views of the dam made famous by those bouncing bomb testers the ‘Dambusters’.
