Bicycle Hire. For you. In the Lake District.

This is what we do, it's what we are known for. Our goal is to get you on the right bike, and the right route, for an adventure that suits you. 


Book your bike hire


If an adventure by bike simply isn't enough, then book another one, but on water this time, with our sister company, Windermere Canoe Kayak. 


Local places to visit by bike

The best way to explore locally is by bike. Whether you simply want to get out and see the scenery, or would like to beat the traffic to get to some of the local attractions. Explore Wray Castle, follow The Beatrix Potter Trail or visit local businesses in picturesque villages. We can help you plan it and achieve it.
