Family Bike Hire Windermere Lake View Behind Ok

Bike Hire

It's time to leave your car behind and take to the trails and bridleways of the Lake District.

We think the new cycle trail network here in the Southern Lake District is brilliant! 

You can hop on a bike and spend the day exploring or visiting well known places of interest such as Hill Top (Beatrix Potters Home), Claife Viewing Station & Low Wray Castle (both National Trust) as well as Hawkshead Village and beyond. 

Our gentle, traffic free cycle routes are suitable for cyclists of all abilities, from families on a mini adventure to more technical riders looking for a mountain experience.  Whatever level you choose, the views are always magnificent!

To book a bike, choose the type of bike most suitable for your choice of route then pick the right frame size for your comfort.

Mountain bike £25 per day

Hybrid bike £20 per day

After a quick bike fit & safety briefing we will chat through route options with you and set you on your way. 

In the unlikely event that you need help or recovery we will provide you with an emergency phone number to call us on.
