Peaks & Puddles relies completely on your contributions, shop purchases and ad clicks to stay here and keep growing.

I’m determined to provide the bulk of the website free to access and keep advertising to an absolute minimum (no infuriating, page-covering pop-ups here!) — but that’s not easy. Producing new content while maintaining what’s here takes a wild amount of time. Here’s how to help support my work while growing your own adventures…

Peaks & Puddles +

Become a Peaks & Puddles + supporter and you’ll get access to every cycle route, plus exclusive extra guides and downloads.

This includes a growing set of downloadable Pocket Guides, in printable and phone-friendly formats, plus the complete collection of navigation files for every route in GPX, TCX and FIT formats.

  • Access to every Peaks & Puddles Ride
    Roll up, roll up, for the rides of my life — rounding up every mile of glorious cycling across roads, trails, towpaths and byways into journeys and stories of discovery and pedalling joy
  • Pocket Guides
    Downloadable PDF mini guides in printable and phone-friendly formats
  • GPX Collection
    Navigation files for every route, plus many alternative options, in GPX, TCX and FIT formats, with a individual and complete zip folder download options
  • … More to come!
    This is just the start of the ride and I’m already thinking how I can “plus” the offer in other useful and rewarding ways

I’ve now rolled all these extra features into one simple extra platform, for a one-off £10 contribution. After that, you’ll be able to return forever to access new and updated content.

Books & Maps

These are my handy listings of local paper maps, travel guide books and other cycling books. Great to discover further reading and routes, equally good to find gift ideas for that next birthday!

By buying through the links on these pages, Peaks & Puddles gets a tiny referral fee at no extra cost to yourself.
