The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They were very busy and it would have been understandable had they been ever so slightly stressed, especially as we turned up hoping for a double carriage for the little'uns despite having not booked. We were very lucky...More

£15 for a bike for a day, was a good deal. Bike was all good, wheels ran true, brakes and gears worked, and the Mondale Trail was great, wonderful views, great history boards etc along the route and all fairly flat. Best thing of all...More

Bit of a trek from the main road along a delightful riverside 'road' but well worth the 10 minutes when you get to the hire shop. We had pre-booked our 2 electric bikes & they were ready for us - complete with helmets, locks &...More

Lovely lazy day cycling along the Monsal Trail in glorious sunshine. Bit of an incline coming back but never too noticeable. All day hire means you're never too rushed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely recommend the cafe at Hassop Station for a wee stop...More
