We decided during our stay in Buxton to try the Monsal Trail. Having not ridden a bike in over 20 years I was a little apprehensive. We rang in advance as we have two small dogs so we could reserve the dog trailer. We got there and they explain everything to you, help you set up the bike sears for size and give you a map with suggestions to stop off at on route. I was a little wobbly first setting off but within a few minutes it was like I had never been off a bike. We had such an aazing day out. The trail is pretty flat and level so once you get up the hill onto the trail the rest is a pretty easy ride. It was such a scenic route and we did the whole 16 mile round trip with a pit stop at Bakewell. The dogs didn’t seem to mind the trailer too. Even my 6 year old niece managed the whole route. They also offer childrens trailers too for those too young to cycle, plus electric bikes. I definitely will come back and do this again soon. Thank you Blackwell, it was a fabulous day 🙂
