About this book

This title covers 21 circular cycle rides in South Lakeland and into the Yorkshire Dales for all levels of ability. The rides are graded from modest to strenuous and range from 6 to 26 miles. This guide contains thorough maps and route descriptions as well as details of fascinating places to stop on these rides through quiet lanes and beautiful scenery. The rides cover south and north-east Cumbria, but also range into Yorkshire. As far as possible they follow quiet country lanes, so that even in the most popular tourist areas you can still feel that you are getting away from it all. Don't feel that you must have a mountain or racing bike or, for that matter, any of the latest fashionable clothes or equipment before you start. The bike that's been gathering dust in the shed will do fine, as the guide includes tips on how to make a successful day out.
