- getting to Buttermere, via train and bike……easiest?
staying in Buttermere for a weekend, I want to get the train and then cycle.
option 1. train to Windermere, then ride via Ambleside, Thirlmere, Keswick, Whinlater. 35ish miles.
option 2. train to Penrith, then ride via Greystoke, Mungrisedale, Threlkeld, Keswick, Whinlater. 30ish miles.
option 1 is cheaper on the train.
anyone done either?Posted 4 years agomikewsmithSubscriber

For the options listed 2
(not done either but driven and ridden enough round there to take a good guess)
If it’s proper crap give some of the Penrith lot a shout and see if they can give you a lift. You might be able to get the bike on the bus too and then ride from Cockermouth/Keswick.mikewsmithSubscriber
I reckoned you were serious about riding just there is always the chance it’s torrential rain and blowing a hell of a head wind 🙂
Train to Workington or Whitehaven is a good call but a will take a lot longer and throw in a change in Carlisle (by which time you would be a fair way in from Penrith.Posted 4 years ago
