Cycle Hire: In Derbyshire

Have Fun with Health Benefits

For both local residents and visitors alike you have the opportunity to take in some of the beautiful Derbyshire countryside,  especially in the Peak District. If you don’t have a bicycle or if you don’t fancy stacking bikes on your car then consider hiring one from one of the three hire centres in Derbyshire. Cycling is a great way for all the family to enjoy the surroundings and at the same time improve your health and well-being.

The cycling routes include Tissington and High Peak Trails at Parsley Hay and the quieter Manifold Track in the south-western Peak running from Waterhouses along the old Leek and Manifold light railway line. These routes are dedicated to walkers and cyclists so there’s no traffic to worry about meaning you can enjoy the natural environment, safely.
