Jump on your bike and be one of the first to experience a brand new cycling trail through Langdale next Tuesday 15 July 2014.

We have teamed up with the GoLakes Travel Programme to hold a special mass bike ride, taking in Ambleside and Skelwith Bridge before riding through to Elterwater and onto the Langdale Valley. It’s free to join the ride, which will include some complimentary refreshments and will culminate in a special screening of a Tour de France Stage at Sticklebarn, before people take a leisurely cycle back to Ambleside.

As part of the 16 mile round trip, the event celebrates the official opening of a new 5 mile cycle route to Langdale, supported by the £6.9million GoLakes Travel programme. Virtually all off-road, it expands the cycling network around the northern end of Windermere and complements other recent two-wheeled developments including the gentle western shore route and the newly introduced ‘bike boat’.
