Cycling in the Lake District
With many paths offering breathtaking views, cycling in the Lake District is a great way to explore the area and enjoy the scenery. If you don’t want to bring your bikes with you, Coniston Boating Centre has a range of bikes available to hire from kids bikes to electric bikes and all come with helmets, maps and locks. If you want to try mountain biking, head to Whinlatter Forest and Grizedale Forest. These two forests offer routes for both beginners and experienced riders. Go Ape is also located at Grizedale Forest so there's plenty of things to do for all the family!
With so much on offer and some of the quietest roads around, the Cumbria and Lake District are seen as Britain’s best cycling destination. There are miles and miles of cycling routes throughout the Lake District.
