Great experience hiring bikes from Blackwell Mill and cycling the Monsal Trail. Bikes were great and staff super-friendly. Quite a long walk to/from the car-park which makes you wonder if you are going in the right direction. Would highly recommend this as a day out.

Hi, I don't think they do electric bike hire - it is just a small bike hire shop. Blackwell Mill is at the northwest end of a disused railway line that is reasonably flat - down hill going southeast and then up hill... More
