196 mile circular road bike tour - North West England

196 miles over 3 or 4 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's 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 27 years and our HQ is in Penrith, the official start point for this cycle tour.
