First topic message reminder :

eh up yawl,

I am likely to be heading to the lake district for a few days away in a few weeks (first ever proper even if small bike trip)


Any suggestions for 3 days worth of riding, I am going with anna who is on here and is fairly new to biking so nothing to serious, but something with a bit of a challenge.

we are staying at the bottom of windermere lake so cant get pretty much anywhere.

any ideas are much appreciated!

Thanks
Dave

I go there on a regular basis, but not at this time of the year! Doubt there will be any bikers unless there's a heatwave.

What route are you taking up there. Motor way to get there quickly or avoiding motorways?

Just looking through the latest issue of RiDE (March issue??) They have a tour of northern England and day 3 (page126) is in the Lake District.
Might be worth a look.
