If these routes are a bit too long, or even not hard enough, then get in touch with the Bikecation team and we will custom build an itinerary for you.


Day 1: Arrive in Cumbria

Arrive in Keswick, based in the heart of the Lake District National Park, which will be your base for your stay. We suggest a quick warm up ride to get used to the nearby hills.

Day 2: 

Here is an example route of what can be ridden on our Lake District Cycle Holiday. All routes can be tailor-made depending on what mileage and elevation you would like to do.


Day 3: 

A visit to the Lake District would not be complete without climbing the famous Kirkstone Pass and the aptly named Struggle. Contact us today to learn more about these climbs and organise a trip to cycle the Lake District.


Day 4: Departure day

There is time for one final cafe run round the Lakes. If you would like an extra night this can be arranged, just contact us below.
