Day Loops and Sky Rides

British Cycling runs a programme of guided rides, known as its Sky Ride Local programme. These are free for participants, who are simply asked to book in advance so the ride leaders know who to expect on the day. The Sky Ride Local programme in Cumbria includes a couple of rides which use sections of the Lakes & Dales Loop.

So, if you would like to sample part of the route in the company of other riders and with the reassurance of a qualified ride leader, check out the Sky Ride website.
