The Lakes and Dales cycle route is a brand new cycling holiday that we're proud to now be offering as one of our tailor made cycling tours. Avoiding the busy Lake District roads, this fantastic cycling holiday journeys through the best of the remote Lake District scenery and into the Cumbrian Dales. The cycle route starts and finishes in Appleby-in-Westmorland, a bustling market town, passes towering Lake District peaks towards the beautiful Cumbrian coast and through the stunning Cumbrian Dales. You can decide how many days of cycling your Lakes and Dales biking holiday should last - from 3 to 5 days - and choose between a self-guided or fully supported cycling holiday.
