Cycling in the Lake District

The Lake District is one of the most popular holiday destinations in England and one of the most beautiful regions of the UK. Many tourists come to the Lake District to explore its vast landscape and if you prefer to do things on two wheels, the region doesn’t disappoint with its many cycle routes, quiet country lanes and bridleways.

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.
