About your UK break

This fantastic cycling holiday will be based out of Derwent Bank. You will find the perfect mix of relaxation and challenge as you tackle the rolling roads of the Lakes, before returning to comfort and views of the mountains. Here you can relax with your choice of tipple on the sun terrace or shelter from the elements in the conservatory.

Over the course of the rides, you will explore quiet country lanes, fells and pretty lakeside roads. The area is also rich in heritage, from the ancient stone circle at Castlerigg to signs of the more recent small-scale mining industry. So join us for this wonderful tour of the Lake District, all set in a friendly and social environment and led by at least two of our experienced guides.
