Another great RideIt! weekend. Well done to everyone who took part! The Mountain Bike route had some technical areas which posed a refreshing challenge and the Roadies had their fair share of climbs!  Feel free to leave your comments on the day below.

Last Minute News before the Ride

The team is out there now, setting up the routes within the dramatic Lake District scenery. We are really looking forward to seeing you there and having a great weekend. Before you set off to RideIt! please read the following advice to participants:

  • Parts of the route, especially on the Sportive ride are remote. We advise participants to take spare inner tubes, basic repairs kit and snacks.
  • The weather conditions can change fast in the Lakes’ so we advise that all participants come prepared for the conditions be it rain or shine.
  • If you are joining us for camping, please request to speak to Dean Stacey or Helen on arrival. Camping is at the event Centre, in Coniston.

We will post rider times here and photos from the weekend next week. Meet other riders attending the ride through the RideIt! Facebook Community.

Information about the Ride

The Lake District has some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK.  Cycling through this landscape, you will be anything but disappointed.  Based out of Coniston just west of the Lake and below The Old Man, the routes take in the trails and roads between Lake Windermere and Coniston.  With beautiful views over the surrounding countryside in every direction, this RideIt! is pretty special.

As a RideIt! first as we offer you the chance to stay in the hearth of the breath-taking Lake District National Park and RideIt! for two days! You can make a weekend of it and Mountain Bike on Saturday, camp overnight and do the Road Sportive Sunday. We offer hire bikes too so that you do not have to worry about bringing a separate bike for each day.

We offer you two days of cycling enjoyment to choose from with Mountain Bike riding on the Saturday and Road Sportive on Sunday. You can make a weekend of it by camping for as a little £10 per tent, per night and £2 per person. Contact
