Those who fancy donning their cycling gear for a scenic guided adventure in the Lake District may be interested in an event taking place on July 3rd.

The Eskdale Trail Guided Cycle Ride starts at Dalegarth station in Boot, at one end of the narrow-gauge Ravenglass to Eskdale railway in the western part of the national park.

Beginning at 11:30 BST, the ride covers eight miles and lasts for three hours.

Those needing to hire a bike can do so for £8, but others may bring their own cycles, while those keen to enjoy a ride on the train to Ravenglass and back can do so for £6.60.

Eskdale is a location that could make a good starting point for a few challenging rides on mountain bikes.

One of these could be the road crossing of the Hardnott and Wrynose passes heading eastwards to Little Langdale, while another pass that can be crossed is plateau of the Burnmoor Corpse Road, which leads northwards to Wasdale.
