…there is no easy riding in the Lake District National Park; the English Alps*. Upland farmers, traders, smugglers, local folk, and intrepid travellers have forged passes up, down and across these Lakeland Fells since ancient times. The busiest, and most practical routes now skirt around lakes, waters, meres and tarns as tarmac slithers; the remoter, more challenging routes quietly recess to the tussocky grasslands, peaty bogs and becks. A vast network of brilliant bridleways to discover by bike. Some rideable; some not. Some hikeable; some not…
Fourteen of us took on the first edition of our Lakeland Pass Stormer from Coniston, exploring this network of passes. One for the adventurers amongst you, for sure. Following the first edition success we have already scheduled/opened the 2020 Edition for booking, albeit with a couple of slight route amendments >> Lakeland Pass Stormer 2020 << for further background to this tour, check out our “Tea and Tarns” Journal, from 2018.
Enjoy. See you out there…
