Booked a bike a few hours before arrival, filled out a form and was on my way in a matter of minutes. Really cheap price for the whole day, came with a helmet and padlock. Came back before closing time, but due to a misunderstanding the cycle hire was closed. The owner came up from his house nearby [...]
My fiancee and I were keen to explore the Monsal Trail whilst spending a few days in Derbyshire. The team couldn't have been more helpful including the suggestion of hiring an electric bike after mentioning I had an artificial hip !!! The trail was awesome and we stopped for coffee and cake at Millers Dale and lunch at [...]
We had a perfect day cycling last week on the Monsal trail with two groups of 20 Year 7 students. This was part of an end of term residential experience that we had set up in and around the Buxton area. Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire were great from the initial booking to the day itself. They offered a [...]
Easy to reserve bikes by phone and a warm, friendly team ensuring you're all set up with the correct sized bikes. Comfy bike seats too- no sore bottoms!! Perfectly located right at the one end of The Monsal Trail so you can cycle all the way down and back. Fantastic pitstops along the way: we enjoyed hot chocolates [...]
The staff were very helpful and informative, the equipment was excellent and well prepared, and the trail itself was perfect. Will be visiting again!
Couldn’t rate this place highly enough, really friendly and helpful and happy to answer any questions. A lot cheaper than anywhere else on the trail and in the perfect spot to start as well! We didn’t pre book but we still received excellent quick service and had a wonderful day because of it. Thank you, will definitely be [...]
Found this through the Internet as looking for a day out activity in the Peaks. The staff were very helpful when we showed up on the day. The bikes are good and the route is of such a low gradient that you don't need an electric bike. The Monsal trail itself is fun to cycle along, and cycling [...]
Great service, really friendly helpful chap at the desk who explained where everything was on the trail. Renting the bike was a really easy experience and took about 5 minutes. The bike was in good condition and worked well. We hired the basic mountain bike which was ideal for the trail. They did have electric bikes and trailers [...]
We hired bikes for the day to cycle the Monsal Trail, it was great fun. The staff at Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire were brilliant and very friendly, they gave us lots of information about the trail and the best places to stop. The bikes were great and well maintained. A brilliant fun day out.
Hired bikes for 6 adults on Sunday 30th June over the phone. Really good value for money, set prices for all day hire. Blackwell to Bakewell, picnic by the river(down the hill from Bakewell station) and back. Staff at cycle hire very friendly and chilled, sweet resident dog Dave greeted us. Bikes were fine(sore bums afterwards though!!) Great [...]
