and knowledge of the area’
A Tale of Beatrix Potter
Beatrix’s inspiration for many of her much-loved children’s books was drawn from Cumbria. On this full day electric bike guided tour, we follow in her footsteps, visiting sites that played a key part in the story of her life and understand how she came to be one of the most generous benefactors of the Lake District.
‘Great mix of info, super route! Just right amount of info and stops.’
Lowther Castle loop
Prehistoric remains, a Roman ‘high street’, Norse hogbacks, gaunt ruins of a gothic castle, and the gnarled trunk of Jack’s Yak all wait discovery on an exhilarating full-day electric bike tour through the history-laden Lowther Valley.
‘Really excellent guided tour -
beautiful route and insight into the area’
An electric bike takes the strain out of cycling uphill and enables you to better appreciate the passing scenery. On these guided tours, there are plenty of rest stops to admire the views, take photos and learn a little more about Cumbria and the Lake District’s rich heritage.
These are just a small selection of the guided cycle rides I offer by electric bike. If you would like to do a cycle tour on a specific theme or in a particular area, please get in touch so we can discuss your requirements in more detail.
If you are thinking of purchasing an electric bicycle, I recommend you visit the Electric Cycle Centre in Penrith which has a large selection to choose from.
