The Mountain Bike Routes

You can use the the map to make up your own mountain bike routes /detours, or follow the route suggestions.

Map Side 1

Skiddaw House 23km / 14 miles.

A tour around Skiddaw. A relatively easy first half on tarmac then it's time for heading into the wilds. There's one lung busting climb and some technical sections so not recommended for beginners.

Skiddaw Summit 17km / 10.5 miles.

The fourth highest mountain in England.
It's most definitely tough to get to the top but the reward: the longest mountain bike descent in England.

Map Side 2

The Circuit of Blencathra 29km / 18 miles

An enjoyable and very scenic trip, with fast riding on smooth trails and lanes for the first half, followed by tricky singletrack passing Skiddaw House.

Combine Maps 1 & 2

The Grand Tour 42km / 26 miles

A big day out. This routes starts off on the Skiddaw House route before breaking off to follow the Blencathra route.
