UK Lake District – Lakeland Epic

Mountain Bike Holiday

If your UK mountain biking never gets much beyond trail centres, this trip will show you a whole other world: a world of high summits with jaw-dropping views, massive, gnarly, rocky descents that last for miles yet have not one other rider on them (except the rest of your group, of course), where you come off the trail and almost directly into the garden of a local pub, serving fresh Cumbrian food and locally brewed beers to help you through the afternoon…

If this sounds appetising, then maybe it’s time for a change from UK trail centres or foreign holidays? Maybe it’s time for an epic, all-mountain adventure through the most awe-inspiring, technique challenging, physically demanding, big and beautiful trails that The Lake District, the UK, maybe even the World has to offer. Over the years we have made many adaptations and reacted to developments along the way to keep things flowing. This is THE trip for anyone who wants to sample UK all mountain biking at its absolute best.



This is a British mountain bike experience to top them all. Our unique route gives you five days of unparalleled riding, high mountain adventure, thrilling singletrack and wild, rocky descents around England’s largest National Park.

Tour Highlights:

  • Superb terrain in real mountains
  • Expert local guide/instructor
  • Comfortable guesthouse accommodation
  • Bags moved on so you just ride with a day-pack
  • A route planned by local experts
  • This trip takes us into some of England’s wildest places, and onto some of its wildest terrain, so be prepared for a truly Epic adventure!
