Moderate Cycle Rides

Moderate Rides - know your cycling level.

You are ready to take on several rolling climbs at a steady pace. You will need to be a regular weekend cyclist with a basic level of fitness and be able to ride for a couple of hours non-stop. Longer rides in the Lake District will inevitably require more stamina or some experience of riding an E-Bike. We ride at a pace where we can still chat, and you will learn about the history and landscape of the Lake District while enjoying cycling. There are lots of stops to admire the views and take photos with at least one coffee and cake stop. Whole day rides will include a stop for lunch in a pub or cafe.

Guided cycling adventure Rides for Moderate cyclists

There are so many different guided ride options in the South Lakes and Furness Peninsula. The rides can be quite easy or more demanding but every ride takes in the varied beauty of this part of the Lake District. The valleys are interspersed with short sharp climbs such as Beesy Bank, Gummers Howe or the Broughton Beck Bastard to name but a few.

All these rides are 50 to 60 miles long and will include at least one stop for lunch and probably a coffee and cake stop too.

The distances and gradients vary as every ride can be shortened or extended to your individual requirements, here are but a few of the rides.

Remember, every road cycle adventure is custom made for you, your family or your group.
