The Lake District, with its quaint villages overlooking tranquil lakes in the shadow of spectacular fells, makes for a great riding location with plenty to offer on and off the bike.
There’s a good reason why the Lakes are one of the most popular places for motorcyclists in the UK. There are fantastic roads with dramatic passes through the mountains, picturesque villages with all the creature comforts that bikers need (an abundance of pubs and cafes, mainly), and stunning nature whichever way you look. There’s not much to dislike.
Here we highlight three of our favourite places to ride, with an option of combining them into one big ride.
Route 1: Kirkstone Pass
Route 2: Honister Pass
Route 3: Hardknott and Wrynose Passes
Route 4: The Big One – All the passes in one
