"The Castle" Sportive
Based at Lowther Castle, near Penrith, in Cumbria, this great 80 mile loop explores some of the best areas of the Northern Lakes in which to ride a bike. Challenging climbs, including Kirkstone Pass, breath-taking descents, lake shores, mountains, wild ponies, hidden Roman roads and stunning scenery are enjoyed throughout the ride.
Then return to explore the Castle and its grounds - a great ride from a great location, set among some rarely ridden places where you will see more wild horses than cars.
