The Peak District National Park Authority has revealed it is running a workshop on bike maintenance, as it seeks to encourage more visitors on two wheels through its Saddle Up campaign.

Run at Ashbourne Cycle Hire Centre, the Basic Bike Maintenance event will be tutored by the authority's chief cycling mechanic Terry Garside.

He will advise on every issue from fixing a puncture to adjusting brakes, with the event starting at 10:00 BST and running until 12:30 BST.

It is one of several bike-related events being run by the park this month, which also include a guided mountain bike ride for beginners, an 11-mile ride round the Howden and Derwent reservoirs from the Fairholmes Ranger Centre.

Those keen to pick up some items to help with bike maintenance may wish to visit their nearest Go Outdoors store.

Derbyshire is home to several cycle challenges on the National Route network, including Route 68 the Pennine Cycleway, which runs from Derby to Holmfirth via Ashbourne and Buxton.
