Lakes and Dales Loop

Start location:

Distance: 196 miles (315 km)

The Lakes and Dales Loop is a 196 mile on road cycle route through spectacular Cumbrian countryside, taking in both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The Dales section runs from Kirkby Lonsdale and takes in the little known valley of Barbondale to reach Dent and Sedbergh. You then travel close to the River Lune as it finds its way between the Howgill and Lake District fells to reach Orton. The route then traverses the Westmorland Dales to Appleby.

The full route then continues on circling the Lake District. Although this is an area known for its hills, the Lakes and Dales Loop actually has relatively little climbing.

Full details of this tour can be found on the Lakes and Dales Loop website.
