A new route has been developed due to the closure of the road on the East side of Coniston Water to all traffic except for access. This is now a great opportunity for almost vehicle free cycling for 8 miles along the shores of Coniston Water, one if Englands largest lakes. This road leads directly to the top of Hawkshead Hill from where the trails of Grizedale Forest are immediately accessible. This new route which leads back to Lowick via Oxen Park is the “Ride of the Year”, because so many of my clients are so delighted with so much to see and experience in the day. Wether riding a hired e-bike or on a hired gravel or mountain bike this ride is ’dooable ’for everyone in 4-5 hours. The time and distance depends on how much time you want to spend cycling in the spiders web of tracks and single tracks in Grizedale Forest. I supply full ride details and maps in full colour with hire bikes. Why not try a guided ride with one of my guides to have an even more enjoyable days cycling? See the guides on this web site.
