The Tour of Britain Returns to Penrith……

2nd August 2016 • Under: News



Monday 5th September will again see world class cyclists taking part in the tour of Britain pass through Penrith as part of stage 2 of the tour.

From Carlisle the riders will immediately head south to Penrith before turning west and tackling the hills of the Lake District, including Whinlatter Pass. The sternest of these tests is likely to come in Ambleside as the peloton take on the climb notoriously known as ‘The Struggle’.  The subsequent descent will then take them down to Windermere before the run in to the finish at Kendal.

We are expecting to be very busy that week, so to come and stay with us before heading into town to catch a glimpse of the action please call us on 01768 863952 – Why not make a week of it, bring your bike and explore all that Eden, with its epic scenery, has to offer?

We’ll look forward to hopefully seeing you!
