Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
2 hours 0 mins  (1 hours 30 mins cycling)

Breeze Bike Rides in South Lakeland

This is a beautiful ride along the back of England’s largest lake to Wray Castle and back. We will cross the lake on the ferry you will need £2 pounds for the ferry plus money for any snacks you buy there is a cafe at the castle.

The ride time will be dependent on ferry timings as it takes 20 mins to get from one side to the other there is an ice cream van and it’s a nice place to wait but please be aware that I cannot be too precise about the total duration of the ride. Approx 8 miles

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  If you enjoy the bike ride and would like to come again perhaps you could look to buy one then. 

We really welcome newcomers to our rides; we will always ride at the pace of the slowest rider so no one is left behind.
