In 2009 we held Cyclefest, a week long celebration of cycling which saw thousands of people from South Lakes take part. In 2010 we ran the Summer of Cycling – a 6 month long celebration of cycling aimed at encouraging as many people as possible to get on their bikes and experience cycling.

This year we are running our Active Travel project. We will be working with doctor surgeries, physio's, schools, workplaces and residents promoting active travel. See the Maps & Events page for all events and resources produced, from active travel guides to new cycling maps and many cycling related workshops.

If you would like to receive our monthly email newsletter containing cycling news and details of all events, please send us your email here.

We will also be producing a cycling and walking map of Windermere & Bowness and surrounding area which can be downloaded here. This complements the Kendal Walking & Cycling map we produced last year.

Our aim is to get everyone enthused about cycling - whether you are a regular rider or have never picked up a bike before!

Take your time to explore the website. Whether you want to learn bicycle maintenance, get involved in the Workplace Challenge competition, go on an organised ride, enjoy bicycle powered smoothies, get more involved in your local cycling club or are simply curious - Active Travel has something for everyone.
