- Info for Riders:
- The Lake District route, starting and finishing in Keswick, is both picturesque and challenging, offering something for everyone. The route is a mix of bridleways,flowing trails, tracks and minor mainly traffic free lanes showing off the full range of what the Lakes have to offer and circumnavigating the Skiddaw Massif.
It’s a fantastic course for a ‘cross bike, although a hard-tail mountain bike would be equally suitable, it takes you to places and offers views inaccessible by road.
There are two routes, the Massif – 100km (62 miles) with 46.3km of the route off-road and the Mini Massif – a shorter 71km (44 miles) with 30km off-road. .
Due to the constantly changing scenery and the shifts in the terrain the ride goes by remarkably quickly as each new section throws up a new challenge or a spectacular view.
Unlike many other long distance cross events, most notably the Three Peaks, the entire route is possible on the bike, no need to get off and run with your bike on your shoulder.
