Cicerone Guide - Mountain Biking In The Lake District

The Lake District is widely considered to be the best destination for mountain biking in the UK and, with its plentiful and varied trails, it is easy to see why.

For mountain biking in Britain, there really is no better area. This guidebook gives great insight into the best trails on offer in the lakes, with routes that will offer surprises to both newcomers to the area and seasoned visitors alike.

24 routes divided into short, medium, long and full-day loops.

Graded rides to suit all levels of experience, from beginners through to experts.

Route information on distance, difficulty grade, ascent, time and how much of the route goes off road

Although it is recommended that a few of the routes should only be done during periods of good weather, most can be ridden all year round.

Threlkeld, Pooley Bridge, Cleator Moor, Muncaster, Torver, Grizedale, Hawkshead, Ambleside, Elterwater, Kendal, Staveley, High Newton, Spark Bridge, Winster

Routes are graded blue (medium), red (hard) and black (very hard). Novice MTBers with reasonable bike-handling skills should be able to complete the blue routes, while experts should be challenged by the red and, more so, the black routes.
