Take Your Bike on the Bus

Bike Bus Services

Bus services which carry bikes


Many buses around the Lake District are kitted out to carry bikes. Some on racks on the back or front or on-board, but the 800 Bike Bus service has been especially converted to carry up to 12 bikes on on-board cycle racks. So hopping on the bus is now an easy way to get to the start of your ride. You can also use it as a back up if you are feeling a little out of puff!

Bikes are free of charge.
