The Lake District has some of the best mountain biking trails in the UK, with shoreline tracks perfect for families and easy days out, or for the more adventurous rider, there are plenty of technical climbs and descents - all accessible right here from our doorstep on Lake Windermere.
We suggest heading across on the car ferry and venturing along the western shoreline ending at Wray Castle where you can enjoy a pit stop for a cup of tea and cake.
For those feeling the need for more of a ride you can follow the quiet lanes out towards Hawkshead Village, alongside Esthwaite Water before heading back down to the car ferry. This route is around 12.4 miles long and we would allow 3-4 hours to complete the circuit (at a leisurely pace).
If you have other routes in mind, just let us know where you are headed before you set off.
Helmets are provided and must be worn when hiring our bikes. You will also receive a puncture repair kit and a route map to keep you on the right track.
