Pedal Peak for Business

The Peak District National Park Authority is working with Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire, Derbyshire Dales District Council and other partners across Derbyshire to deliver a package of support for businesses within the visitor economy sector. The project is part of the Growing and Developing the Visitor Economy Sector within Derbyshire programme funded by the England European Regional Development Fund. The National Park is leading on the £450k ‘Pedal Peak Business Initiative’ strand of the project which will increase competitiveness of Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) to create a welcoming destination by stimulating and supporting a number of tourism businesses that are cycle friendly and contribute to a growing economy.

Line

The project is :

  • Developing a cycle tourism toolkit for businesses
  • Developing a local Cyclists Welcome accreditation
  • Administering a £150k small grants scheme to enable businesses to offer good quality experiences for all types of cyclists
  • Delivering workshops and events to enable businesses to understand the cycling market and to increase business profitability as a result
  • Promoting cycle loops and itineraries for residents and visitors around the four cluster areas

So if you are a local visitor economy business with less than 250 employees who could be interested in applying for a grant to boost your business please contact Carol Parsons, Pedal Peak Business Officer:
