Description

Using existing cycle trails and quiet country lanes, this guidebook presents a five-day cycle tour of the Lake District. For each day there are two options, giving up to a total of 186 miles and almost 5000m of ascent. There are also 15 challenging day rides departing from Keswick, Ambleside, Penrith and bases to the southwest and southeast of the Lake District National Park. It also gives an outline of the 112 mile Fred Whitton Challenge ride over seven iconic passes.

Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by either 1:100,000 or 1:200,000 mapping, together with details on gradient, major climbs and cafes/pubs en route. Also included is a comprehensive 'what to take' checklist plus other practical information such as preparing your bike, packing for a cycle tour, fuelling your ride and more.

The guidebook allows for flexible touring of between 2- 7 days, suggesting schedules taking in all the dales, lakes and passes and making maximum use of budget accommodation. It contains full logistical information, as well as advice on preparation and equipment.
