As a not-for-profit, the Green Commute Initiative put their efforts into getting more commuters cycling and  supporting independent bike shops. They are passionate about E-bikes, believing they are the future of commuter travelling. Green Commute Initiative is HMRC compliant and FCA authorised and regulated for consumer hire.

Big shout out to Peak Ascent Cycles for an emergency repair whilst out on a... charity patrol in Buxton today! As part of the Stockport Spider-Men & Friends, we have been patrolling Buxton in costumes trying to bring cheer to folk during Lockdown, whilst simultaneously raising awareness and funds for the mental health charity- Papyrus. But today our wagon broke down, I knew I could rely on Peak Ascent to help out and he did it for free!! SK17 6EU It’s not the first (or last, soz) that I turn up hoping they can sort us out there and then- they’ve never let us down! The service is amazing, the prices are SO GOOD and I love visiting with my big Dutch style bike or my husbands original 1950s Dutch postal bike which are both totally unsuitable for Buxton 😂 An eye roll and a giggle but never a no! I can’t recommend this shop enough!read more

Patrick Healy, Peak Ascent Cycles

I’ve already spent three decades riding bikes! 

It’s sparked a passion to open my own bike shop and create a place to meet and help like-minded enthusiasts.

Peak Ascent Cycles is about sharing my love for all things cycling. It’s an opportunity to give back what cycling has given to me over the years.

I’ve created this article which gives a brief overview of my cycling journey.
