Why not cycle the entire route over several days taking the opportunity to leave the route to further investigate this unique area of South Cumbria.

Guided adventure rides are available where I can guide you well away from the beaten path on the many lanes that criss-cross this area. Every season is totally different offering renewed vitality to already appreciated views.

Uncover the secrets of this stunning land and seascape. Be intrigued and inspired by this natural environment, washed twice daily by the incoming tides. Investigate the area’s proud heritage, with abbeys, priories, castles, ancient mills, farm houses and stone circles all being a testament to man’s struggle to tame and farm this outstanding area of Britain.
