Bookmark and Share
The Lake District will be filled with mountain bikes as the national park hosts a major competition in the sport during May.

Timed for May 21st to 22nd as part of the Keswick Mountain Festival, the planetFear sponsored Lakes Epic will be a gruelling challenge for those donning cycling gear and taking part, with 110 km to cover consisting of rough terrain.

Director of the Keswick Mountain Festival Lucy Bennett said it is "going to be one of the biggest highlights" of the event, which runs from May 18th to 22nd.

It will include 65 km of riding on the first day and 45 km on the second, with steep slopes, rocky descents and exposed sections all included in the course.

Bike rising will also be involved in the festival when two triathlon events take place of different distances, with one featuring a 35 km cycling section and the other a 17.5 km ride.
