By bike

The Lake District was made for cycling, with challenging off road mountain biking routes to gentle country lanes there is something for everybody. Dramatic mountain biking over Lake District peaks and rolling valley trails can entice families and committed bikers alike.

But it’s not just some of the best cycling in the country we have here, there’s also a fantastic network of cycle hire points, bike shops and bike repair workshops etc.

At least two cycle bridges have been lost to floods in Cumbria and several paths and roads within the National Cycle Network are submerged. For further information visit
