UK Lake District – The Three Summits
Mountain Bike Holiday
Take in three of England’s most impressive summits in three days of incredible mountain biking. The riding is challenging – both physically and technically – but the rewards are immense. This is a long weekend of real “All Mountain” adventure for bikers who want to experience epic rides in the wild open spaces of Britain.
This is a British mountain bike experience to top them all. Our route gives you three days of unparalleled riding, high mountain adventure, thrilling singletrack and wild, rocky descents around England’s largest National Park.
The summits of Helvellyn (950m), Skiddaw (931m) and High Street (828m) are three of the most dramatic biking destinations in the UK, criss-crossed by trails that offer a range of incredible mountain bike rides. Being based in The Lake District we know all of the route options inside out, and we’re the experts when it comes to guiding people safely through them.
Each mountain has its own character, and these will unfold as the weekend progresses. From the long ridge that defines High Street to the rounded giant of Skiddaw and the rock-strewn summit of Helvellyn – every mountain has its mixture of breathtaking views and mtb challenges. The three days of mountain biking will be adapted to suit the weather conditions and group ability, but you must be prepared for steep climbs with hiking sections, narrow ridge rides and exposed summits and descents.
Our weekend base will be a guesthouse, located in the north-eastern Lake District gateway town of Penrith. This has been a favourite area for our clients since 2001. Penrith has many pubs ands restaurants for you to choose from, you will not go hungry after hard days on the bike.
