Get down to the Lakes this winter!

November 30, 2009

This is an unashamed plug for one of the great riding areas of the UK… We make no apologies for loving the Lakes…

Cumbria Tourism is keen to point out that, not only did most of the  Lake District (and all of the National Park) escape the recent flooding, but that the best way of supporting one of our best National Parks is to get down and ride your bike there.

Firm singletrack and soft grass to fall on. Ideal...

We’re already big fans of the Lakes and Issue 54 of Singletrack (out on December 10th) has a feature we shot in Whitbeck on the west coast of Cumbria, and we’re off there in the New Year for some big mountain action.

A fine place to start is Vertebrate Graphics guide to the Lakes

We reckon that all Lake District rides should involve a push to be worthwhile...

The other thing to do – which is what our intrepid heroes did in the new issue, is to just find somewhere good to stay in a place you’ve not been before and get up there. If you’re already having an adventure, it’s not hard to have fun on bikes.

For more info on the Lakes, have a look at and we’ll see you up there…
