Sample Weekend - Lake District holidays – Road Bike Miles and Freedom
Arrive at Askham Hall Estate and check into to your beautifully designed room on Thursday evening and enjoy a meal in the award winning 3 AA Rosette restaurant. If you're a foodie then Richard Swale will wow you with his masterful cooking skills, using the techniques he has learned on his journeys from various placement in France, Copenhagen, and London.
On Saturday morning our guide will meet you as you finish your breakfast to discuss the day ahead. We’ll already have spoken to you about your road cycling level and what you want to achieve out of your private guided cycling holiday. After checking the bikes or setting you up on your rental bike, you’ll head out for a full day in The Lake District cycling down the side of England’s largest lakes with the options to climb famous mountain passes like Kirkstone Pass or Hardknott Pass.
There are a huge number of road bike cycle routes to mix and match together, and our expert guide can flex each ride as the day progresses, to make it work for you. The day can simply be guided with a few coaching techniques on key areas such as cornering at speed, advanced braking for additional traction, efficient pedaling whilst climbing, and so on. Alternatively, it can be pure guiding with a certain mileage or Lake District attraction being the focus – the choice is yours. We’ll select a great country pub or café for lunch, then enjoy more spinning with amazing landscapes in the afternoon. We'll get you back to your accommodation at around 4 pm.
The final part of the day will be time spent setting you up for two further days of your self-guided cycling holiday, or walking, over the weekend. Your Guide is an expert cycle route planner and now that he knows your interests and abilities he can mark up maps, give ideas and help you to shape two perfect further days of Lake District UK exploration. This keeps your costs down – by only having one full day of guiding service – but still lets you benefit from the best local knowledge to make your Lake District holidays a success.
We can offer 1 day, weekends or a week of guided road cycling and instruction, as well as a wide choice of places to stay in the central and northern Lake District UK. Every area has a different grade of road climbs and some wonderful places to stay – contact us about your bespoke cycling holiday and we’ll guide you to the right venue and work out a package to suit your budget and your needs.
