Monsal trail is a great bike route for beginners (as I am) tunnels are fun and views are amazing. Hired 2 adults bikes from Blackwell mill, lady who served us gave us some great advice about the route and where to go. She also explained that the return is slightly uphill and we should do the sights and food on the way back to break it up which was very useful! Bikes were easy to use, helmet and and lock included.
Would remcomned the trail and Blackwell for the hires 🙂
