Lovely people, lovely location, great bikes

£15 for a bike for a day, was a good deal. Bike was all good, wheels ran true, brakes and gears worked, and the Mondale Trail was great, wonderful views, great history boards etc along the route and all fairly flat. Best thing of all…More Ian H

Absolutely Fantastic

We stumbled across Blackwell Mill cycle hire a day earlier after walking in the wrong direction along the Monsal Trail, but I am certainly glad we did. Fantastic customer service- very warm and friendly staff who make great cups of tea and coffee, and are very knowledgeable about the area. Hired three adult bikes all day; the prices beat all the other cycle hire businesses on the Monsal Trail. The ride was very enjoyable- quite easy on the way there as there’s a slight downhill incline. The way back was tougher, but it was a good challenge and we certainly…

Excellent service

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They were very busy and it would have been understandable had they been ever so slightly stressed, especially as we turned up hoping for a double carriage for the little’uns despite having not booked. We were very lucky in that it just became available, but we should have booked ahead. Not only that, but our experience of cycling could be detailed on the back of a postage stamp. However, they were completely unflappable and we were made to feel completely at ease. They managed to see everyone promptly whilst providing an excellent level…

Great service

Definitely recommend visiting this idyllic location either to hire bikes or stop for a snack from their tuck shop. We had stopped at Blackwell Cycles for a snack and a drink. On setting off on our return journey the pedal on one of our bikes broke, so headed back to Blackwell Cycles to seek help, Simon was extremely helpful and repaired the bike even though it wasn’t a hire bike, and wouldn’t accept any payment. Was lovely meeting Dave too! Sue T

Best way to see Bakewell

This has to be the best way to see Bakewell. We had excellent advice on the phone and were able to book our bikes for the next day. There is a big car park near by which only takes credit card payments. The easy 10 mins walk to the bike hire shop is lovely.All the staff were very friendly and helpful, they gave us great tips on the best places to stop and eat or stop for the best views. We got all the way into Bakewell, where there is a steep downhill into the town so take it steady…

Great helpful service

Hired a bike today to go for a ride with my son. We brought my sons bike in the car and unfortunately the brake cable had detached . The guys at Blackwell sorted it for him at no cost and also gave us great info about the trail . We will be back soon and glad the dog is on the mend. Ali alisonpearce0

GREAT DAY OUT & excellent bikes & staff

Bit of a trek from the main road along a delightful riverside ‘road’ but well worth the 10 minutes when you get to the hire shop. We had pre-booked our 2 electric bikes & they were ready for us – complete with helmets, locks & a useful map. This was supplemented with local knowledge & advice freely given by staff. A brilliant experience cycling along the Trail, through tunnels & by old stations. Refreshments readily available and some good pubs nearby (Anglers Rest was most welcoming & pretty). There is a definite incline on the return journey but the electric…

Great day out

Lovely lazy day cycling along the Monsal Trail in glorious sunshine. Bit of an incline coming back but never too noticeable. All day hire means you’re never too rushed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely recommend the cafe at Hassop Station for a wee stop off. tim_mineard

Blackwell Mill cycle hire-the place to hire your bike for the Monsal trail

I had a great day out at the Monsal trail, we hired our bikes for the day from Blackwell mill cycle hire, the price is very reasonable for a days cycle hire and is at the very start of the trail so you can’t go wrong with this pace, plenty of refreshment stops along the way and you are given a lock to secure your bike if you decide to wander along the way. The guys are very friendly and helpful, I will certainly return in the future Wendy M
