Cycling at Knockerdown

Bring your bicyle for some wonderful cycling in Derbyshire

Bicycle friendly accommodation with bicycle rack and a bicycle repair station, conveniently located near to famous off road cycle trails on the edge of the beautiful Peak District.

Why not bring your bicycles with you? We are situated with an abundance of beautiful places to visit with spectacular views of the picturesque Derbyshire Dales. There are plenty of traffic free trails which also makes cycling family friendly.

At Knockerdown Cottages we have our very own bicycle repair station and pump, for any emergency repairs or just to check all is well prior to going off on your cycling journey. The station acts like a mechanic’s workstation – by placing the saddle of your bike between the durable rubber grips, your bike will be stable enough for you to easily navigate the bike for maintenance. The major advantage of a workstation is it allows you to test a bike’s gears by spinning the pedals, without turning the bike upside down, or lifting the rear wheel awkwardly. The tools are on long steel cables, so you’ll be able to get to every part of your bike with it securely in place. The repair station includes the following – Phillips screw driver, flat screw driver, hex key set, tyre levers with steel core, adjustable spanner, flat wrench 8mm x 10mm and 13mm x 15mm. The floor pump is fitted with Presta and Schrader valves so saves your arms from a mini pump work out. See our bike maintenance page for more maintenance related advise.

The cycle rack is also conveniently situated next to the repair station and is located under the archway, so giving you an undercover space to do your repairs and keep your bikes dry.
