THE BEST CYCLE HIRE PRICES ON THE MONSAL TRAIL   

Situated at the START of the Magnificent Monsal Trail, in the Peak District National Park. The centre is approached by entering the Wye-Dale car park on the A6 (opposite the Topley Pike Quarry entrance), 8 miles north of Bakewell and 4 miles south of Buxton on the A6.

The Monsal trail is a disused railway line closed in 1968 and converted in 2010-2011 into a new traffic-free cycle track, allowing people to cycle from Blackwell Mill, Nr.Buxton to Bakewell. The eight and half mile trail follows the river Wye, taking you through several newly opened lit tunnels, between steep gorges, surrounding limestone hills and across the spectacular Monsal Dale viaduct making this an exceptional cycling experience.

Discover the Monsal Trail

Discover along the way the stepping stones and natural springs, lime-kilns and the old station at Millers Dale built in 1863 where the hustle and bustle of the past are but a distant memory. Spot the cotton mills of Litton and Cressbrook built in the 18th century, here the force of the river Wye was used to power the water wheels of the mills. Stop and look down to see the river Wye waterfall at water Cum-Jolly unseen from this view point for over forty years.

UNEXPECTED CLOSURE. It’s with a heavy heart  that we are having to close our doors yet again after only been open  for 1 week There has been a fall of rocks onto the Monsal Trail 1/2 mile down track from the centre and Peak park Authority have made the decision to shut the Trail from this end until the contractors are in place. We hope to REOPEN Saturday 1st May 2021

Had a good impression from when I phoned to book bikes and no answer on phone. When a company then takes time to callback to see if you wanted them that tells me they care!

Super helpful proprietor when we picked up bikes and pointed out places worth stopping on the Monsal Trail which was really helpful. Map provided and really good value a day.

Phone and book and enjoy a great day!!

A brilliant bike hire service. We were given all the tips on our bike ride to Bakewell and back. Bikes were of excellent quality and the owner is a very helpful genuine guy who is eager to please!!

Perfectly situated at the beginning of the Monsal trail. Great bikes, we had manual and electric in our group. Mum is in her 70’s and found the electric motor really useful, the 17 mile round trip was easily manageable. All our needs were catered for bike-wise, we were even offered gloves to borrow (gets pretty chilly in the old railway tunnels)and a rucksack! Great experience and a really satisfying day.

Had a lovely cycle ride in Derbyshire. Bikes at Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire are well maintained and on one of the best trails in Derbyshire. Now used this place three times. Never let down. See you soon I hope.

Great little bike rental shop at the start of the Monsal trail. Walked along the Wye River from the car park. Friendly service – provided recommendations where to stop for food on the way. Booked an e-bike the night before. My wife really enjoyed the bike and its “pick-up” after only lightly pedaling – made the ride “effortless”. The trail was busy with a few walkers “blocking” the trail – not following suggestions to keep to the left and allow cyclists to pass. Stopped at the Hassop Cycle Cafe for lunch. Beautiful scenery in late September sunshine!
