We handed over one of our new 2019 Trek Powerfly hire bikes to Kieran from Dialed Mag. You can read his full review or see the review below.
We think Ebikes are somewhat of a game changer, with the Powerfly range being at the front of that.
A longer ride taking in some classic dark peak climbs and descents with breathtaking views throughout. Starting and finishing at the Bike Garage this ride starts off heading north up the Thornhill trail to the Ladybower Reservoir before climbing up towards Hope Cross and descending down Jaggers Clough. A quick road section to Edale leads you up to Mam Tor then south towards the Peak Forest and on for some gravel road action along the dark/white peak boundary into Abney and on for a final descent from Shatton Moor down to the Bike Garage
We are excited to announce that the Bike Garage has been named the no.1 bike hire in Peak District by TripAdvisor travel site! It is fair to say we are pretty chuffed with this achievement. Since we started in 2010 we have steadily grown our hire fleet from 11 bikes too now around 30 include full suspension and Electric Bikes. We have always tried to provide a high-quality bike and advice on routes.
This is a slightly more challenging ride that offers four brilliant descents ranging from wide grass routes to tight exciting singletrack. The route does have some tough climbs that can test a rider if they don’t pace themselves, it is best to take it steady putting the effort in on the climbs and descents while recovering on the flats. Hope is positioned just before the halfway mark making it a perfect place to stop for some food and drinks before starting the second half if you need it!
This ride is a perfect sample of the Peak District and the variety of trails it offers, from the old railway lines of the Thornhill Trail to the rocky technical descents of The Beast. The 11 mile loop has something for everyone and provides some incredible views over the Mam Tor Ridgeline. The Beast descent is challenging and does require a certain amount of bike control and confidence, large rocks and loose stones can throw experienced riders off however it is a brilliant descent if you have the confidence
I will be closed from 25th-30th May for staff holiday. As a one-man operation, I work 6 days a week and from time to time need to close for a short break and also to celebrate my sons first birthday. If you would like to know our current workshop turnaround then please call me on 01433 659345 for the most up to date information.
The PDMTB all weather loop is a great ride all year around, but after a wet winter it merits are even greater. Due to the fact it is almost entirely a rocky route, it stands up incredibly well to the Peak District climate. With decents like the bridleway down into the Roych Clough (Pictured below) and the Classic Jacobs Ladder, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
Each year we replace our entire hire fleet. Selling last years hire bikes, we have a range of models and sizes. For those who have already registered interest, we will be contacting you shortly to discuss the collection. But if you are interested please contact us or come have a chat with us in the workshop.
I will be closed from 20th of December until the 8th of January. I am a one-man band and take a couple of weeks off over the festive period. If you would like to know our current workshop availability email me. We will be going for a ride on Wednesday 20th of December from Cafe Adventure in hope, all are welcome. Meeting at 6/6.15 for a fun ride for a couple of hours. Followed by drinks and festive snacks at the cafe afterward. Thanks again for your business over the last 12 months
