Cycling & Mountain Biking!

Greystoke and Stafford House are ideally located for two main national cycle routes;  the Coast 2 Coast and the lengthy but fantastic John O Groats to Land's End or (JOGLE) as it is also known.


There are lots of routes in and around Greystoke, from gentle climbes to something a little more strenuous.  We have Greystoke Forrest just a short ride away, where there are numerous trails to test your skills.


However about half an hours drive from here just on past Keswick is Whinlatter Forrest.  Here whether you have brought your own bike or you need to hire one, you skills and stamina will be tested to the full.


There are people on hand at "Whinlatter Mountain Bike Hire and Cyclewise" to help you out if there is anything you have forgotten, or something that has broken on a run.  It's a great day out and there's also something for everyone. 

Don't forget the Whinlatter Mountain Bike Challenge taking place on Sunday 23d March 2014!
