Cycle the Lakes

Welcome to my new venture – Cycle the Lakes.

Love Sportives but find them a bit impersonal and expensive? Find the routes a bit, well, samey, busy and the food awful? Guide-led rides bring local knowledge and experiences not available to mass events or via Google maps.

Guided Rides – pick a ride from the menu

I ride with you, on utterly stunning roads that aren’t accessible to large events.

I organise warm and welcoming start and finish points; not a Portaloo in sight.

No stopping to check maps, just checking out the views.

We pause at the best cafes in The Lakes mid-ride. No boring biscuits.

Bespoke Rides – hit the Bespoke tab

Use the Bespoke Rides as a template, shorten or lengthen them, or just tell me what you want to do…

Half Day, Full Day, Flat, Long Climbs, Short Climbs. A Lake District Tour? Hit the Bespoke Rides tab.

Everesting – first event June 2021

8848m climbing in one day.

A team to feed you, care for you, support you.

Local accommodation and a famous cafe at the foot of the climb.

Please like our Facebook page for updates and check back here late 2020.

You can also find us on Facebook; where we will be announcing our events: Cycle the Lakes

We're currently building great rides. Ride with a guide, so no checking maps, no hunting down a cafe, no getting lost and someone to fix a puncture. Our first events are launching in October.

Happy New Year everyone. Thank you for continuing to follow us.
Our first Guided Ride of 2020 is another installment of our initial event in October - Cycle to the Sea. Its on Saturday April 4th so a bit early for mountains. Much better a jaunt to the seaside!!
80km, a much nicer start and finish than in October and 1000m climbing.
Please see https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cycle-to-the-sea-tickets-89406145187?aff=eand for tickets.

I always said I didn't like riding in the rain. "I'm not paid to ride my bike".
Well, some people did pay me to ride my bike yesterday and I'll be be forever grateful to them for their support. The route worked really well; the views were left to our imaginations.
Our inaugural event - Done!
