Nestling between picturesque Ashbourne and the spa town of Buxton, Parsley Hay is the ideal starting point to explore the Peak District. The High Peak and Tissington trails – both converted from former railway lines - are easily accessible, providing over 30 miles of flat, traffic-free cycling, with views of the rolling limestone countryside and stunning summertime banks of wild flowers.
Our cycle centre at Parsley Hay offers a choice of bikes for hire, including adult and child cycles, electric bikes, trail-a-bikes, tandems, buggies, mobility scooters. We have a range of accessible equipment for hire including an all-terrain wheelchair bike, hand cranks and tandem trikes, take a look at our website for more details and a full list. Friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to offer help and advice and can repair small mechanical problems or fully service your bike.
An on-site shop is packed with handy goods from guide books and maps to clothing, along with cycling related products. There’s a tempting selection of refreshments – including homemade cakes – and the site also provides a car park, toilets (including disabled) and a picnic area.
