Explore the South Lakes

The Lake District itself is now a designated World Heritage Site, and the South Lakes offers an incredible mix of beautiful scenery, cultural heritage and abundant flora and fauna.  Here you’ll find ancient woodlands, river valleys, of course the beautiful lakes and mountains. In the South Lakes you can discover the villages of Hawkshead, Grasmere, or if you head towards Coniston and the west side of Windermere you’ll find quiet paths and tracks to explore.  There are literally hundreds of great pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from, and they give cyclists and adventurers a warm welcome.  So if you’re interested in Donald Campbell’s Bluebird or a steam train ride; Beatrix Potter or Wordsworth;  medieval castles, or the arts and crafts movement; the South Lakes has it all.



Why Electric Bikes?

Electric bikes offer more users an opportunity to explore Morecambe Bay regardless of age or level of fitness. The big benefits of electric bikes come from the electric motor. The extra power makes the problem of hills and headwinds a thing of the past, as well as letting you carry full panniers and luggage on your bike.

On longer journeys, an electric bike means you don’t tire nearly as easily so you’re able to explore more of Morecambe Bay and the Bay Cycle Way. An Electric Bike Network on route NCN 700 will open up the route and the wider Bay area to a wider range of users and also present a potential business opportunity for local cafes, cycle hire, accommodation and attraction providers etc. in the area.

Please take a look around this site, get inspiration and information and then come and visit Morecambe Bay!
