My name is Patrick Healy, I have lived in Buxton all my life and have been an active part of the cycling community in the town for over 30 years. I’ve been a part of various clubs in the area and competed in dozens of events.

Professionally I have worked for large multinational car companies in recent years.

If you want to know more I would happily invite you to visit our Peak Ascent Cycles showroom, based in Buxton, at 6 The Colonnade, Cavendish Arcade – just a short walk from the Crescent Spa Hotel.
