Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire Monsal Trail


We are reopening the cycle hire and tuck shop on:  WEDNESDAY 1st JULY 2020.

For cycle hire on the Monsal Trail, situated at Blackwell Mill, Wyedale, 3 miles downstream from Buxton., Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire can be found at the beginning of the magnificent Monsal Trail in the Peak District National Park. Cycle hire is available to all ages. The Monsal Trail is a disused railway line recently converted into a cycle route that runs through the Monsal tunnels from Blackwell Mill near Buxton, to Bakewell giving 8.5 miles of traffic free cycling activity amongst some of the most spectacular scenery that Derbyshire has to offer. The 8.5 mile cycle trail follows the River Wye and takes you through several newly opened lit tunnels, between steep gorges, surrounding limestones valleys, Wyedale, the Wye Valley, Millersdale, Chee Dale and across the spectacular Monsal Trail viaduct, making this an exceptional cycling experience.
Now available -Eco Republic electric cycles.
