The Brathay 262 is an ultra distance cycling event that involves 10 laps of Windermere, England's largest lake, in 24 hours. Over 10 laps the total ascent is 19,500 feet, the equivalent to cycling up Mount Kilimanjaro, and the distance travelled is 262 miles, equal to a journey from London to Kendal. The course is a mix of quiet B class roads, with plenty of twists, turns and hills, and wider A class roads with more traffic. Dedicated cycle paths and lanes occur on some of the route up the East side of the lake. There are breathtaking views of the fells and woodland all round, as you ride and repeat again....and again....and again....
