Signs of interest for cyclists in Lake District
Bookmark and Share
Those donning their cycling gear and jumping on mountain bikes in the Lake District may wish to stop and enjoy a few new features appearing along the ten-mile route between Keswick and Threlkeld.

Lottery-funded body Bassenthwaite Reflections is installing ten new plaques along the route to provide information to cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users about the history and nature of the area, the Lake District National Park Authority has revealed.

These include details on the local bobbin mills, the building of the railway line that used to run along the path, remaining features of the railway and local fauna and flora.

Head of Bassenthwaite Reflections Martin Varley said: "The thousands of local people and visitors who enjoy this renowned railway route will hopefully have a much better and more enlightened experience, thanks to the panels."

Cyclists in the Keswick area may also be attracted by the nearby Whinlatter Forest Park, which has two mountain bike challenges on offer - the red-grade Altura Trail and the blue-grade Quercus trail.
