The Lakes and Dales cycle route is a brand new cycling holiday that we're proud to be offering as one of our tailor made cycling tours in 2018. 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, while avoiding the tourist traffic. 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.
