With access points at Pooley Bridge, Askham and Helton to the fells around High Street with its hundreds of miles of bridleways, mountain biking in this area is awesome.
New for 2019 is a network of brand new trails that runs throughout the close by Lowther Estate. Cycle-paths snake through the ancient woodland and pastures of Lowther Park, following the stunning contours of the landscape.
All these trails have been created for family enjoyment and are colour-graded in accordance with national cycling standards. There are signposts at every junction, with destinations and length in miles clearly shown.
Below we have compiled 5 do-in-a-day rides in the Ullswater valley. Two of the rides mentioned include sections on The Ullswater Steamers where no pedalling is required!
