This Cycle route covers over 72 miles
( 80 miles if you use the 2 off-road sections) of beautiful
Lake District countryside. 

This route should not be confused with the 'Cumbria cycle way'. 
Our ride loosely follows the 'Cumbria Way' walk route which has
been walked and enjoyed for decades by countless numbers of
people who love walking and enjoy the Lake District for its
natural beauty and variety of terrain.

This cycle route encompasses everything the Cyclist loves:
a superb variety of terrain, ranging from country roads to rugged
off-road trails, up 'leg burning' hills, down on to grassy bridlepaths. 
(off-road sections, on both days, are optional).

You will ride through the heart of the Lake District with scenery
that is unsurpassed anywhere in England.   
views are a small selection of those that you will see and
enjoy on the Cumbria Way cycle Route (C.W.C.R.).
They will give you an idea of the type of terrain and breathtaking
views that you will experience whilst cycling this route through
the Lake District. 



First Day:   The ride starts in the centre of Ulverston > passes
through Coniston > Elterwater > Grasmere > Keswick. 
Approx. 40 miles.

Second Day:  Leaving Keswick > Threlkeld > Skiddaw House > Bassenthwaite > Hesket Newmarket and on to Carlisle. 
Approx. 32 miles.

The c.w.c.r. ride has been designed to be ridden over 2 days with
2 nights in accommodation, but can be broken up into more days
 if required.  A popular break-point is Grasmere. 

We are hoping that this ride will tempt those of you who do not have
the time to  cycle the C2C, which usually takes a minimum of 3 days. This ride can happily be done in a weekend, with only one night in
 B&B accommodation, if you so wish.
