It’s one thing to have a day out on your bike and take a break at one of our eight cycle friendly pubs. It’s quite another to contemplate a cycling holiday in two of the UKs most loved national parks. Yet, more and more people are planning some excellent tours in these two areas.
Luckily every Individual Inn is cycle friendly and are also in some of the best areas for road and mountain biking in the UK. We have hotels near to some of the top mountain biking centres in the country and all of our inns & pubs with rooms offer great road cycling from the door.
If that all sounds a bit ‘full on’ a number of our inns are also near cycling trails that are more than suitable for family rides and for people who just want to hire a bike to explore the local area.
Cycle breaks in the Lake District
We’ve got hotels next to some of the best mountain biking and road cycling areas in the Lake District National Park. Stay at the Masons Arms and you’re just across Lake Windemere from Grizedale Forest, which has trails for family cycling and hardcore MTBers. Prefer to bag a few passes on your road bike? Then book a break at the Queens Head in Troutbeck and fill your boots in the heart of the lakes.
Cycling routes in the Yorkshire Dales
There’s some truly stunning road routes from the Spread Eagle at Sawley, a well know cycle friendly pub of many years standing. ‘The Spread’ is also close to Pendle Hill & Gisburn Forest for anyone needing a downhill mountain biking fix. Move up into the Yorkshire Dales National Park itself and enjoy the cycle touring country around the Fountaine Inn at Linton in Craven and cycle the wonderful Wharfdale Valley.
