Easy Off-Road Rides – Know your cycling level
These routes are suitable for beginners and those who may not have ridden off-road before. Great for building your confidence, they follow tracks, bridle paths and quiet country lanes. They are relatively flat, however, it is the Lake District and you may encounter an odd cheeky uphill! Ride at a gentle place with plenty of opportunities to take photos and enjoy the tranquility of off-road riding and of course there if always a coffee and cake stop to be found! Special cycling gear is not needed for these rides but a good pair of flat soled trainers is recommended.
