Starting Point & Postcode
Hassop Station, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1NW  DE45 1NW
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Breeze Bike Rides in Derbyshire Dales

This ride is part of the Peak District Cycling Festival.

There is a pay and display car park at the starting point, bike hire (http://www.hassopstation.co.uk/cycle-hire.htm) including electric bikes, toilets and a cafe.

This is a completely traffic free ride on a flattish disused railway line through some stunning scenery. Perfect for beginners and those that haven’t been out on their bikes for a while! We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.

We’ll pass through several lit tunnels and explore some stunning scenery so you might like to bring your camera!

The ride is approximately 16 miles in total, and just short of 20 miles if we add on the section from Hassop Station to Coombs Road in Bakewell and back. As previously mentioned, there is a bike hire shop at the starting point with electric bikes available so this really is a ride open to all! The Monsal Trail is a multi-user trail, suitable for mountain and hybrid bikes.

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

We will be stopping for a well deserved coffee and cake so please bring some money.

Please dress appropriately for the weather and you’ll need to bring a drink, snack to keep you going, spare inner tube and puncture repair kit.

If you have any questions for more information on all of our rides please see our Facebook page Breeze network Derbyshire

Look forward to seeing you there!

Don’t forget…. Breeze are on a mission to spread the word about their rides, and need your help. If you introduce one friend who goes on to take part in a Breeze ride, you’ll receive a Breeze water bottle, introduce a second friend, you’ll be the proud owner of one of their swish Breeze Buffs, and introduce a third friend and Breeze will send you £15 of Love2Shop vouchers.

Meet the Champions

  • Melanie Flude
    Melanie Flude I have been riding since I was a child, but took up cycling more seriously last summer after being informed, I could no longer run anymore.
    I regularly cycle on my own clocking up between 10-25 miles, but more recently have been a Breeze participant, which motivated me and inspired me to become a Breeze Champion.
