Holiday Information

This UK family cycling holiday allows you to take all of the hassle out of arranging a cycling adventure with your family so that you can relax and enjoy the experience together in the Lake District.
Based in Penrith in the Northern Lake District, this guided holiday is perfect for those who are new to cycling or who want to develop their skills and experience to cycle safely and more confidently. Our guides will show you how to set your bikes up at the start of each day and to do necessary safety and maintenance checks to ensure you all have a safe and comfortable ride. They'll also carry all the kit you need for the day's ride and show you what's needed to fully enjoy a day out on the bike.
With plenty of milestones, activities and adventures to make each ride memorable, you can enjoy the sights around Penrith whilst experiencing some great cycling on minor roads and the Sustrans National Cycle Network. We will pass Greystoke and Brougham Castles, cycle along the Eden Valley and enjoy an ice cream at Abbots Lodge.
The rides will take place on traffic-free cyclepaths and minor roads. With the proper training and precautions, cycling on quiet backroads can be the perfect place to ride with your family giving you access to a wider network of routes at home.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

For social cyclists looking for a cycling break on gentle slopes and manageable distances in beautiful scenery.

You can arrange to hire tag-alongs, tandems, child seats and trailers but if your child is cycling independently then they need to be used to cycling on minor roads.
