Spent 5 hours cycling on the Monsal trail with the Family. Excellent day out with plenty of interesting places to stop. Hired bikes from Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire – good quality equipment and very knowledgable and helpful staff. The guys there gave us a map of the route and circled places of interest that were perfect for stopping and getting photos. Would certainly recommend to family and friends.


Hired an Electric bike today ( aged 60 ) – chose to pedal as much as I could, but had the back up of power if needed on the climbs. Couldn’t stop smiling what a blast, the best time I have had in years. Like being a child again. Will be back next year in the spring and will be bringing friends along. Staff were very helpful and had lots of tips, to make the trip enjoyable. Can’t wait for next year now!

A brilliant day out, marvellous scenery and a proper Bakewell pudding halfway through the ride. The bikes were excellent and really well set up and the staff couldn’t be better. I’d definitely recommend to anyone

My partner and I cycled the Monsal Trail yesterday with hire bikes from Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire. We had an amazing day on the trail and would highly recommend both cycling the trail and hiring bikes from Blackwell Cycle Hire
