Bespoke Motorcycle Tours and Rider Coaching
Dear all. Welcome to the Peak Rider website.
Once the again the world – per Shakespeare – is our oyster. Following the clamping down of COVID the world is once again ours to pry open and savour the discoveries.
So, what’s on the menu for 2023 then? Plenty. We let out the clutch in 2022 and for ’23 we’re ready to take our adventures to a higher gear.
First, Baja California. There are few better way to spend 10 days in February than to bask in the desert and coastal serenity of Baja California. Combined with an up-close whale-watching experience – calving grey whales on their annual migration -you have true magic at hand. We’re currently working hard on dates and details.
How about Europe then? Well, we have two tours in the works there.
First, we’re in the initial stages of assembling a Picos to Pyrenees Tour, to take place the first two weeks of May. This one will begin in the UK and take us via overnight ferry to Northern Spain, the Picos and Basque region. From there we’ll move into the high Pyrenees before returning to the UK via winding routes in central France.
Second, the Ring of Éire Tour, which we recently completed. Normally we don’t repeat tours – so many places, so little time, yadda, yadda. However, this circumnavigation of Ireland was such a stunning success that it needs to happen again. Details below. Best way to make it happen? Get in there now!
Are we done for 2002? Not quite. The Magic Pueblo Tour – an epic 16 day, 3000 mile trip in Mexíco – is set for departure on 6 November. Whilst all the reserved rooms have been allocated for months we could likely squeeze in another one or two if pressed.
Closer to Global Headquarters we continue to offer one-on-one advanced road-riding skills development. When was the last time, if ever, that you had your road-riding skills assessed or looked to improve them? Every day is a school day. Have you been skipping class?
In the meantime, let’s not pay too much attention to the news feeds – generally a festering miasma of depression. Biking is a joyful activity and, as a notoriously gregarious and happy lot, we can share something everyone can use more of; kindness and laughter.
Peak Rider Adventure organises and leads annual bespoke motorcycle tours; in Europe and from Southern California. Our goal is simple; to share the joy of discovery with you.
Looking to improve your riding, increase your confidence and sharpen your road skills? We can provide you with the right tools for safer and even more enjoyable road riding. Peak Rider delivers effective one-to-one advanced rider coaching. We also conduct classroom-based Roadcraft Safety Workshops for groups of 8 to 15 people.
Peak Rider Adventure is owned and operated by Mike Moloney, a RoSPA-certified advanced road riding instructor with over four decades of international experience. Get started on your next adventure! Get in touch with Mike today.

From a visitor’s perspective The Emerald Isle has so much to offer we scarcely knew where to begin. Nonetheless, that was the easiest decision to make when we first planned this Peak Rider tour. It simply has to be Dublin, the home of Guinness.
This 11-day, 12-night explora-thon takes you on an anti-clockwise loop around the island’s outskirts. Along the way you’ll visit mysterious ancient ruins, see breathtaking natural wonders, experience epic seascapes, and bisect bucolic hidden valleys and narrow rocky passes. Carefully selected hotels deliver a very warm welcome and proper Irish craic at the end of each day.
Ancient Newgrange, Belfast’s Titanic Museum, The Giant’s Causeway, Donegal, Aran Isles, Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry? Yes, all of those, and a whole lot more. That list barely scratches the surface!
The riding? Ireland’s narrow and winding rural roads mean you won’t likely trouble top gear. Never mind, you’ll be too busy laughing out loud in your helmet to notice. Might it be damp at times? Count on it, although you probably won’t care.
Your adventure gets underway when we meet at our Dublin hotel the evening of Monday, 21 August. We’ll wind up at the same lodge on the evening of Friday, 1 September.
