Cycle hire

Why not explore the High Peak Trail and the beautiful Derbyshire Dales by bike?


Cycles for hire

With over 17 miles of trails through beautiful countryside with dramatic views, our family-friendly and traffic free cycle trails are here to be enjoyed by everyone.

Just follow the line of the former Cromford and High Peak railway from the Cycle Hire Centre at Middleton Top, taking in the stunning Derbyshire Dales countryside.

We have bicycles for all ages and child seats, trailers and taggers (to add to adult cycles), through child's cycles to full size adult cycles. We have:

  • hybrid bikes, ideal for the trail
  • comfort bikes
  • electric bikes, that help by giving you extra pedal power

We recommend that you wear a helmet whilst cycling. Helmet hire is free with the hire of any bicycle.

Please bring a form of photo identification with you, such as a driving licence. A cash deposit of £20 is required (£50 for electric bikes).
