The Lakes and Dales cycle route is a new cycling holiday that we're proud to now be offering as one of our tailor made cycling tours. Avoiding the busy Lake District roads, this fantastic cycling tour journeys through the best of the remote Lake District scenery and into the Cumbrian Dales. The cycle route starts and finishes in Appleby-in-Westmorland, a bustling market town, passes towering Lake District peaks like Skiddaw and Blencathra and leads you towards the beautiful Cumbrian coast and through the stunning Cumbrian Dales. If you love fantastic scenery with a few challenging climbs and some superb hospitality along the route, this might be the ride for you! You can decide how many days of cycling your Lakes and Dales biking holiday should last - from 3 to 5 days - and choose between a self-guided or fully supported cycling holiday.
