Lake District cycling at its best – even in winter!

The Lake District and Cumbria has long been a popular place for both road cyclists and mountain bikers. Such varied terrain and some of the best cycling roads in the UK it’s no wonder it is a mecca for cyclists. The Tour of Britain over the recent years fully confirmed this with a record number of spectators both local and from afar watching the stunning yet challenging terrain Cumbria and the Lake District offer. Look out for another, sure to be, exciting stage through Cumbria in 2016, Stage 2 – Carlisle to Kendal.

The region isn’t just for pro cyclists, the Lake District is a haven for leisure cyclists. Let’s Ride bike rides were launched in the Lake District, the first National Park in the UK to do so. Previously known as the Sky Ride initiative, it was only held in cities and big towns. Thanks to the GoLakes Travel project, funded by the Department for Transport and delivered in partnership with Cumbria County Council, Lake District National Park Authority and Cumbria Tourism, Let’s Ride continues to be a success in the Lake District with HSBC sponsoring and supporting alongide British Cycling.

Routes in and around the Langdale Valley have proven very popular for Sky Ride Local with plenty of uptake. The area in and around the valley has everything from challenging gradients to routes around scenic tarns and of course, simply stunning vistas wherever you look. Langdale businesses both support and encourage cycling in the area. It is one of the best ways in which to enjoy the Langdale Valley whilst being an environmentally friendly way in which to get from A to B. Brimstone Hotel, the luxury Lake District hotel on the Langdale Estate both encourage cyclists to stay and ride and their spa makes for a handy place for relaxation if you’ve pushed it that little bit too hard! If it’s really been a tough ride for those staying in one of the Brimstone suites, order room service and dine on the private balcony!
