This guide presents eight challenging bikepacking routes - cycle tours with
some off-road riding - in and around the Lake District National Park.
Suitable for experienced MTB riders and gravel-bike riders comfortable
with rough terrain, the routes offer the opportunity to get as close as
possible to the high mountains - including a ride on England's highest
bridleway over the top of Helvellyn. This is an area in which
accommodation and facilities are plentiful, although many riders may opt
to wild camp in order to enhance the feeling of freedom and adventure.
Plentiful information is supplied to help bikepackers plan and ride the
routes. The maps and elevation profiles show the distribution of facilities,
and the guide also offers suggestions for possible itineraries. Clear
numbered route description accompanies the mapping and readers can
register their book on the Cicerone website to receive free GPX tracks. The guide includes the popular Lakeland 200.
