Start: 10.30am - at the Lakeshore bike hire cabin. Please arrive promptly to allow time to park and to fit bikes and helmets. Expected return 3.30pm.

Your adventure starts on the unique bike boat from Brockhole to Windermere's western shore. A unique opportunity to enjoy a sail on the lake and explore Windermere by bike. You will be led by trained volunteer cycle leaders.
