Hen party of 11, Monsal trail cycle ride

By |2019-07-12T12:00:00+00:00June 2nd, 2019|Testimonials|

We had a most enjoyable day cycling 8 miles to Bakewell,and back. The path was great with beautiful scenery. The cycle hire staff were ready with our appropriately sized bikes on arrival. We had a puncture and they attended to us Quickly. On returning some of our party were inexperienced cyclists and were a little late back to [...]

Highly recommended

Friendly, knowledgeable staff, good quality bikes and a fantastic cycle trail. The walk from the car park takes around 10-15 which means it makes sense to buy all day parking if cycling the whole trail. AdamH256

After hiring bikes at grizedale at £25 per bike for half a day during Easter, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the prices at Blackwell Mill and it was for a whole day! The guys in the hut were great and quick getting us ready to go. The bikes were absolutely fine, they had gel seats, a [...]

My partner and I spent a lovely Easter Weekend Break in the Peak District. On The Saturday we had decided to hire a bike to go along the Monsal Trail - it was fantastic. We had pre-booked over the phone (to which I am glad we had as it was very busy). We had to park the car [...]

My son is absolutely train mad so we knew we had to take him on The Monsal Trail while we were on holiday. We chose Blackwell Mill to hire bikes from as it’s a set price for the whole day which was perfect as we weren’t sure how long it would take 2 children and their unfit parents [...]

What a great day out cycling

By |2019-07-12T11:19:19+00:00April 24th, 2019|Testimonials|

We stayed locally and wanted to do some cycling during our Spring break. Blackwell Mill cycle hire were the best price on the Monsal trail. Starting the opposite end of this cycle frail along the old railway track. The gradients are gentle and Bakewell is around 1 1/2 hours. Which makes a good halfway house. We did this [...]

Perfect Monsal Day Out

By |2019-07-12T10:10:36+00:00April 22nd, 2019|Testimonials|

Perfect way to explore the Monsal Trail. Only £37 for 2 adults and a tag-along for whole day, Inc helmets and bike lock. Staff couldn't be more helpful and get the bike set up and ready for you. Bikes are good. Sturdy, 24 gear, everything works perfectly. I prefer it to the one at Hassop which can get [...]
