Visitors to the Peak District National Park on two wheels can now share their passion for the area thanks to a newly designed cycle jersey – with proceeds going towards the National Park’s conservation and protection.
Developed by the Peak District National Park and UK cycle wear designers Milltag, the new ‘road jersey’ is now available to buy at National Park visitor centres at Bakewell and Castleton, and online.
The design features a number of iconic elements of the Peak District; from the millstones that greet you as you enter the National Park, to unmistakeable gritstone crags on the skyline and the winding passes so revered by cyclists.
Additional detailing also reflects the four climbs of the UK’s top 100 that feature in the Peak District National Park; Holme Moss, Mam Nick, Winnats Pass and the Cat and Fiddle.
Peak District National Park chief executive Sarah Fowler said: “The Peak District has a rich cycling heritage; hosting iconic routes and competitions, home to famous and unforgiving climbs, and as a popular destination for both world-beating athletes and weekend riders alike.
“We have over 30 miles of accessible, traffic-free trails – perfect for families and an opportunity to stay fit and healthy whilst getting closer to nature in the National Park.
“For those of us who love the Peak District, this is a great way to celebrate our passion for the area - along with the knowledge that each jersey worn helps to support our work in keeping the National Park special for everyone.”
The cycling jersey is now available from National Park Visitor Centres at Castleton and Bakewell and online at www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/shop.
