Cycling

Discover the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District at your own pace with bike. Visit Beatrix Potter's Hill Top and Hawkshead, explore Claife heights forest, Bowness and Windermere lake shore or Ambleside, Keswick and Grizedale forest. Whichever cycle route you choose, amazing views reward you around every corner. Stop a while for a picnic, take photographs and create memories of the Lake District and North West of England that you'll keep forever, as you explore the beautiful lakes by mountain bike.

 

The Lake District was made for cycling, with challenging off road mountain biking routes to gentle country lanes. Enjoy the man-made off-road trails at Grizedale & Whinlatter, or try a classic cross-country route. The hills and fells around Windermere provide great cycling country. The western shore of the lake is particularly good for bikes.

 

If you’re looking for a great family cycling adventure in the Lake District, the Windermere Bike Boat is a brilliant choice.  Kids of all ages will love sailing with their bikes across Lake Windermere, followed by a family friendly cycle ride along the lake shore to Wray Castle, and the return boat ride.
