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 about a 10 minute walk away – which was a very picturesque walk to the cycle hire. On arrival the staff were extremely friendly and informative – our bikes were all ready and we were provided with a very detailed map of places of interest along the route including places where we could stop off for refreshments. The safe return of the bikes to the hire shop was secured by leaving a driving licence/proof of ID, with them which I thought was an excellent idea. We cycled the whole way to Bakewell and back, which is about an 18 mile round trip. (Great going to Bakewell as hardly had to pedal – a little tougher on the way back due to a slight incline.). The scenery along the way was breathtaking especially Monsal Head – I am so glad that we decided to cycle this route and more especially that we chose Blackwell Mill to hire the Cycles from.
