The first day will start around 12noon depending on the travel arrangements. We will ride through. the northern section of the Lake District National Park.

At Keswick we pick up a pleasant cycle track- trackbed of the old Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith railway - through the beautiful tree-clad Greta Gorge.

Two Threlkeld to Nenthead 44miles
A hearty breakfast is recommended to fill those needy legs before we leave Threlkeld on the scenic gated road.We are then up hill and down dale as we head for Penrith via Greystokes, (Tarzan Fame) . Today you'll encounter your biggest challenge, reaching the summit of Hartside will no doubt give you a huge sense of achievement. The support van parked at Hartside café at the top of the summit will be like a magnet as your legs work hard cycling up the hairpin bends to the top. The homemade cakes and hot drinks from the support van will be a just reward. The payback downhill will take us all the way to Alston where the last climb of the day will be up the cobble street . A final two miles will deliver us to our overnight stop at the welcoming Nenthead Hall Country Hotel.
