Challenging Cycle Rides

Challenging Rides - Know your cycling performance level

There will be some overlap with the moderate rides but these rides will include longer and steeper climbs as well as perhaps the Lake District's renowned mountain passes! Long climbs followed by steep descents are ridden at a faster and more consistent pace over longer distances. We stop occasionally to take in the views, fill our water bottles or for a coffee break.The mid route cafe stop will be a welcome break and a well deserved rest. These rides are for fit road cyclists where cycling is the major part of their sports regime. These can be ridden on E-Bikes but only with substantial cycling experience.
