cycling & mountain biking in the lake district
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.
Bring the family and follow one of our family friendly cycling routes, enjoy tours by electric bike or sign up for a Sky Ride.
You can hire your bike (including electric bikes) once you are here, and there are plenty of electric charge points too.
