The sun is shining and the temperatures rising after one of the driest Aprils on record. Even here in the Lake District the spring daffodils are wilting, grass is not growing for the spring lambs and ewes, and everywhere is dusty. Yet we are, at last, ready to reopen for bike hire and guiding on 30th April 2021. Thank you to everyone who has already pre booked their bike hire for spring, summer and autumn. Pre booking is essential to ensure our Covid-19 protocols are met and the bike of your choice is available when you want it. All hirers are allocated an individual time slot to collect the hire bikes to minimise person to person contact. I look forward to welcoming you all to Lowick to hire bikes from our extended fleet of hire bikes.
