From the most casual of cyclists to seasoned pros, there’s a route for everyone in and around England’s largest national park. From family friendly sections of the 196-mile circular Lake and Dales Loop to the tear-jerking inclines of Honister pass (reserved for only the hardiest of Lycra warriors).
For those who fancy a bit of off-road action, the mountain bike trails of Whinlatter push you through the thick of the forest with fast single-track sections, jumps, table tops, and other features. From the easier green routes to the hardcore red routes, you won’t be cycling for long without hitting a little action.
The Lake District has also become renowned for its cycling holidays due to the myriad of luxury hotels, cosy B&B’s, and expert cycling centers, so if you’re traveling down (or up!) for more than just a day trip, you won’t be without somewhere to get advice, eat, and get a good nights sleep!
