We are very excited to share with you details of Jnetics inaugural Challenge event, a 4 day, 190 mile cycle challenge in the Lake District in the Spring. From our wonderful base of The Langdale Hotel and Spa in the heart of the Lake District National Park, we will set out on 4 varied and spectacular cycle routes with stunning scenery at every turn.
Not only will we see almost every Lakelands lake and a total of 5 major road passes, we will also enjoy breath-taking views of every mountain group in the Lake District.
Sunday April 25 – arrive Sunday lunchtime in time for a warm up ride around central Lakeland including views of Elterwater, Windermere and Grasmere lakes.
Total: 33.5 miles
Monday April 26 – we ride north alongside Thirlmere Reservoir towards Keswick, enjoying stunning views of the Northern Fells including Skiddaw and Blencathra, and lakes Ullswater and Windermere as well as Ambleside.
Total: 48.2 miles
Tuesday April 27 – with a good few miles now in our legs, we tackle the challenge of the Lake District circuit, cycling clockwise and visiting Little Langdale Valley, Wrynose and Hardknott passes, Derwentwater, Keswick and finishing at the amazing Stone Circle with spectacular 360 degree views.
Total: 67.6 miles
We will then transfer by coach back to the hotel.
We will enjoy a celebration dinner at the end of our challenging day on Tuesday at the Langdale.
Wednesday April 28 – we cycle the Grand Finale, the central and southern Lakeland circuit taking in Elterwater, Coniston, Grizedale Forest, Windermere, Rydal and Grasmere before a final turn of the pedals into the hotel.
