What Are Day Loops?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhile the Lakes & Dales Loop makes a great multi-day tour, you can still get a flavour of it without taking on the entire circuit in one go.

As a guide, we have devised a number of loops which take in sections of the Lakes & Dales Loop , but offer circular day rides of various lengths between around 10 – 40 miles, using alternative return routes that enable riders to finish up where they started out.

These loops are based on small towns than offer accommodation and refreshment opportunities, together with parking, usually a bike shop and sometimes a rail link. So, useful places to start and finish a bike ride. The loops are ideal for families who want to get out on their bikes and explore Cumbria.
