Third time cycling the Monsal Trail, and second time hiring from Blackwell Mill. Both times have been great. Rang ahead and booked the bikes and they were all ready for us when we got there. Friendly staff – could have been more helpful getting us set up, good prices and good bikes – well maintained and safe. Monsal Trail itself is a great day our, long straight cycle which our 7 year old managed (with a few pit stops) – wonderful changing scenery the whole way and café to aim for at each end. Getting to Blackwell is a bit of a trek (10-15 minutes) from the car-park so give yourself plenty of time – but all part of the experience. See you next year!
