Cycle Tours In and Around the Lake District
The Cycle Tours In and Around the Lakes District guide book is a spiral-bound guide book to cycling in Cumbria and Lakeland.
The Lake District boasts some of the most stunning mountain scenery in the country, providing a dramatic backdrop to many of the rides featured in Cycle Tours In and Around the Lake District.
The practical spiral-bound guide describes 20 wonderful lane rides of 24 – 35 miles in South Lakeland and the Eden Valley. The rides have been designed to use quieter roads.
- All of the rides are highlighted on Ordnance Survey Landranger 1:50,000 mapping, seen as the gold standard of mapping for cyclists.
- Junction-by-junction route instructions guide you through the region’s beautiful countryside.
- Each ride contains details of distance, grade of difficulty and refreshments along the way (with phone numbers of pubs and cafes so that you can check on opening hours).
- A height profile gives you warning of the hills to expect and schematic maps show how the ride can either be shortened or linked to adjacent rides for a longer day out.
