It’s no surprise to anyone that the Lake District is packed full of activities for everyone, from active families to intrepid solo-adventurers… One activity worthy of attention is cycling! There’s countless cycling trails all over the Lakes, for a range of different bikes too.
We understand that not everyone has enough space to bring their bicycle with them on their break in the Lakes, and that’s why the bike shops here are so popular! You can hire a bike for the day from a selection of bike stores for £15 a day!
What bike is best for me?
We all have a different idea for biking, some prefer a relaxed ride on the roads, others like to stay off-road and the more adventurous of us like to bike up mountains! For those interested in a more leisurely cycle: a Touring Bike is perfect, with features focussed more on comfort, you can channel your attention to really take in the surroundings.
If you like a little more choice in where you can travel, not limiting yourself to either the road or off the beaten track, the Fat Bike would be ideal. Primarily an off-road bike, the oversized tryes make riding on unstable and soft terrain a treat!
Finally, the Mountain Bike: it’s all in the name, perfect for riding in and around the hills, you’ll be ready for any terrain you come across as you cycle on the innumerable cycle trails.
Where should I cycle?
There are too many trails to count! Whether you’re into off-roading, touring or mountain biking, the vast list of options available is huge! For a professional opinion, we’d suggest you enquire upon hiring your bike, or you could always call us at 015394 33240 and we’ll tell you all about our favourites!
