Their ex-professional riders and highly qualified coaches with over 25 years' experience. City to Sky Experience True North took inspiration for their City to Sky Experience from time spent riding in Canada. The Sea to Sky is an incredibly scenic road that runs along the coastal line from Vancouver to Whistler and beyond, taking in some amazing sights along the way. The City to Sky Experience showcases the amazing diversity Sheffield has to offer, as well as its proximity to the Peak District. This journey takes you on a professionally guided trip, on top-of-the-range full suspension electric mountain bikes, from the heart of the city centre parks through woodland tracks, past amazing scenery before reaching the gritstone escarpment famously known as Stanage Edge, where you can take time to appreciate the views and magnificence surrounding you.
The route will showcase the beauty of the city centre and the accessibility and ease in which you find yourself surrounded by woods and moorland, before arriving at the stunning outcrop of Burbage Rocks, sat 1,500 feet above sea level. Whilst the elevation gain may seem challenging over 15km, their e-bikes will take the sting out of this amazing experience whilst taking in the scenery and falling in love with the ‘Outdoor City’. There will be time to take photos and explore the rocks whilst they load the bikes back onto a bike trailer, before returning you to the city centre via the courtesy bus.
