It’s never too late to start a new hobby or get fit.  Even for the less active hiring an electric bike in the Peak District National Park is a great way to enjoy the countryside.

On the traffic free Monsal Trail you can have a great day out.  From Hassop Station on the Monsal Trail you can hire electric bikes (book in advance) and the pedal assist makes for effortless cruising. My husband and I enjoyed setting the speed and level of assistance on the bikes which are easy to use and ideally suited to leisure users.

The bikes have an upright position offering the most comfort for cycling and even come with a handy basket to carry your essentials for the trip.  They are heavier than a conventional bike because of the battery but you can start in gear and with power assistance and once going they feel lighter and easy to pedal.

There is plenty of parking at Hassop Station plus once you have enjoyed a power assisted cycle the Hassop Station Café serves a delicious range of homemade food including locally sourced produce. There’s even a sun terrace, covered outdoor area, bookshop and gift area.

So if you want a silver biking day out in some glorious traffic free countryside why not try hiring an electric bike in the Peak District?
