Chris Herring, Green Building Store Director, will be leading this cycling tour for AECB members of our four recent Passivhaus and retrofit projects  (Denby Dale Passivhaus, Cumberworth retrofit, Stirley Farm EnerPHit and Golcar Passivhaus ). This forms one of the legendary AECB Pedalhaus tours ‘for cyclists with a passion for eco architecture’.

The tour comes the date after the AECB conference in Sheffield, allowing AECB visitors to stay on and include the tour in their conference plans.

Pedalhaus partipants can join at various points throughout the day and can join us for all or part of the day. For example visitors can join us for the visit to Cumberworth retrofit only and then return to Denby Dale train station.

Participants with 4 wheels would also be welcome to join the various stages of the tour. We are hoping for a lot of cyclists on what should be a very scenic and beautiful route, interspersed with a selection of interesting and pioneering  Passivhaus and retrofit projects,

Trains from nearby Slaithwaite station run to Huddersfield at:

It is possible to get a train back to Denby Dale via Huddersfield. There are also good connections from Huddersfield to Leeds & Manchester.

NB Train companies have varying policies regarding taking bikes on trains.

Please let us know if you are having logistical problems as we may be able to help with lifts in the Pedalhaus support vehicle!
