196 mile circular road bike tour - North West England
 
2, 3, 4 or 5 days
 
Cycling holidays in England do not get any better than this. A cycle route that loops around our most beautiful national parks, skirting the foothills of our mightiest mountains, meandering along the Eden Valley with its picture-perfect stone built villages: It is no wonder that The Telegraph newspaper described this journey as “Britain most beautiful bike route.”

This fabulous cycle ride was designed collaboratively by local and national groups, intent on showcasing the very best cycling, most welcoming towns and villages, and stunning natural scenery that abound in The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. At CycleActive we know this region, and this route, inside out – it’s been our home for over 20 years and our HQ is in Penrith, the official start point for this cycle tour.
 

 

Our organised tours of the Lakes and Dales loop can be enjoyed over anything from 2 to 5 days – this lets us cater for everyone from expert level road riders seeking a big challenge, to leisure cyclists who want to combine backroad cycling with great experiences of Lakes and Dales life, culture, food and scenery along the way.
 
This is a self-guided tour, so you do need to be fairly self-sufficient during the daily rides. The route is signed on the road, we provide you with a fully marked up map, and can give you digital downloads of the route for your phone or GPS device to make things run smoothly. We organise great accommodation in hand-picked hotels and guesthouses, vehicle support for emergencies (so breaking down doesn’t mean the end of the ride), and move your bags from point to point so you can cycle with just what you need during the day.

The quiet roads makes this ride perfect for road bikes as its 100% tarmac. Hybrid bikes, e-bikes and mountain bikes are also welcome. You can also choose to hire a bike and helmet from CycleActive, which gives you greater flexibility if arriving by train. The Lake District is only three and a half hours from London Euston train Station.
