Gravel Bike Ambleside Itinerary Introduction

Glorious Gravel – Introduction

With the expansion of the gravel trail network in the Lake District, perfectly timed with the evolution and rise of the gravel bike, this tour sets out to explore the best Cumbria has to offer.

For those unfamiliar with gravel bikes picture a road bike with its dropped bars and disc brakes, but add more forgiving frame angles and larger volume, treaded tires to absorb the bumps. Ebike versions are also welcome, offering a little assistance on the hills.
